    Broadway Race Hysteria: White Guy Not Allowed to Play White Character Cause It’s Racist

    By kyle | August 4, 2017

    Bizarre doings over at a Broadway show called “The Great Comet” when a star white actor was to replace an unknown black actor in the lead role. Now the show looks like it will have to close since it has no star.

    UPDATE (Aug. 9): The show just posted a closing notice and will shut down on Sept. 3.

      I refused to see it, so my wife dragooned a friend into accompanying her to the show. She still doesn’t understand what they hell she saw.

      Broadway meantime is now fully in the grip of a left-wing hysteria that dictates madness as sanity and sanity as mental illness.

      We’ll on just about every list of up-and-coming new Broadway shows. With almost no exceptions, when they arrive in the mail, into the garbage they go.

      Meanwhile, the producers know that no matter what the hell they stage, they have an automatic wave of tourists who will watch almost anything at almost any price.

      This is ART?!
