i will never understand why people talk about plays/musicals having problematic characters as if it is a bad thing. honestly, if a musical had 100% perfect characters with no flaws, it wouldn’t be realistic or relatable because no one in the real world is perfect. in the aftermath of the tony nominations i have seen waaay too much hatred between fans and this topic has been brought up many times and it just annoys me because yes, the characters may not be good people, yes, they may make big mistakes but that doesn’t mean it is a bad musical or that people shouldn’t like those characters… everyone just needs to chill a little and just respect one another and stop causing petty arguments over something so minor.
Do you have any links to these cabin fics you're referring to? Haha, they sound col but I've never seen one
