greased lawsuit

apparently the professional production of Grease with an all female cast scheduled by 2 philadelphia theater companies has been threatened by a lawsuit to be brought by Samuel French inc., who licenses the script for a violation of contract. what total crap. frankly this kind of casting is the only thing that would compel me to watch a production of this musical which always made me want to vomit in high school, especially when everyone kept singing the damn soundtrack. changing this from traditional gender roles to this weird butch/femme thing would actually make it interesting.

    from a strictly academic perspective. of course.
