Ok, so I say this as a musical theatre person, who was just in a production of this show…
I’m totally behind putting diversity into this story, that was never my issue. But this offends me. A lot. Mostly because of what they’ve done to the Daddy Warbucks character because he was NEVER a publicity seeking politician (who is possibly a total asshat.) And I love the character of Daddy Warbucks BECAUSE he’s not like the rich men of today. He’s somebody who gave a shit when America was falling to pieces.
And props to Jamie Foxx, he’s a great actor, but this is NOT the Daddy Warbucks I know and love and I’m not okay with that.
