Of course not.  But his hypothetical real estate listing would never exist to begin with.  And Orthodox Jews have been moving to waspy towns in droves.

New Jersey and NYC suburbs are not WASPy. Drop the word from your vocabulary until you know what it means. 


"...everyone finally shut up, and the audience could enjoy the beginning of the Anatevka Pogram in peace."

Look, its clear this person is horrifyingly ignorant and bigoted here, and its not our job to educate them. But it IS shocking that we cant discuss a HOST of topics on these boards without moderators swooping in and killing whole threads, but this rampant antisemitism is being openly tolerated for the better part of a full day.

Literally, this person is complaining about "hoards of Jews" moving into neighborhoods "in droves." Moderators where are you? This is appalling.

There are not different definitions just because you want to justify your ignorant use of a term you clearly used without knowing what you were saying.

But we are beyond that, as you've managed to turn your gripes about Jason Robert Brown and the color of Hannah Cruz's skin (both repulsive takes in and of themselves, dont get me wrong) into a screed about undesirable Jews moving into certain neighborhoods in a manner you do not approve of. This is as close to hatespeech as I've ever seen on these boards, and would not be tolerated for ANY other minority.

When did i anything about undesirable Jews?  Most of the men I’ve dated have been Jewish.  And as far as Hanna Cruz’s skin, she said herself at a talkback after the show yesterday afternoon that it’s a slippery slop because she’s white passing.  You don’t know what you’re talking about.

At the risk of adding to this idiocy, I will note that Hannah Cruz was known as Hannah Rose Deflumeri until only a few years ago. I have known who she is since she was in high school and a clip of her teenage turn as Mama Rose on YouTube gathered major attention. She subsequently starred in some non-Equity tours and I had always thought she was white until she suddenly became Hannah Cruz and was starring in Hamilton. It seemed like a self-marketing move, which a lot of people do, and that’s cool, but it’s true that she doesn’t really look Latina, and is clearly half Italian or something. The whole thing is a little weird to me, but hey, it’s clearly working out for her.

This is exactly what was talked about during the talkback.  Ann Sanders said someone told her she would book more work if she took her mother’s maiden name, Cheng.  She said she would never do that because her father meant more to her than anyone else in the world.  Racism is wrong in all its forms.  There’s been controversy over Georgia Stitts music program for not accepting white applicants, and yet in JRB’s show he’s casting white girls for Latina roles.

You are not adding to the idiocy, you are legitimizing the rantings of a bigot by taking them up on their foolishness.

I am a white guy married to a Latina and our daughter is also mixed, so I have a bit of a vested interest in the subject. Our last name is very “white,” and if she grows up, wants to become an actress, and decides  to use her mother’s maiden name (also Cruz, incidentally) as a stage name in order to book more Latina roles, I would 100% understand and support that. However, I don’t want to speculate any further about Ms. Cruz’s motives for changing her last name.
 

BTW, “WASP” indeed has only one meaning…

I wanted to love this - but alas, I didn't.

However, I did love seeing a new musical that wasn't full of pop hits or based on a big blockbuster movie.
