John Borek started this petition to Stop 'The Music Man' from coming to Broadway. and

Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster are headlining a revival of Meredith Willson's 1957 musical "The Music Man"  now scheduled for December 2021. Let's recap the show. 1) A con man comes to 2) an all white town in Iowa 3) to fleece the unsuspecting citizens and 4) stalk the town librarian 5) while panicking the townspeople of River City that their children will be corrupted by RAGTIME music. Perhaps, Mr. Jackman, as an Australian, doesn't understand the threatening overtones as seen through the lens of the last four years. Perhaps if it were about residents of Alice Springs who were threatened by didgeridoos and clapsticks, he would get it. Perhaps he doesn't understand the Blue State makeup of Broadway theatergoers. Or perhaps he is planning to be the only white actor in an all minority cast... which would be some coinage toward redemption. After all, River City does usually imply a town on the flats where whites don't live. This isn't "Carousel" or "Oklahoma" where you can do a comfortable contemporary pivot. Broadway Cares. Prove it. Sign this petition today.
