    “We approached the musical with a 1970s flavor,” said Drew Deapo, the musical's technical director at J-E high school.

    This would be reason enough to boycott.:laugh:

    Video of the upset stage mother addressing the school board [skip to 1:47:30]. Later on a former student defends the play's directress as being very committed to 'diversity':

    Turns out the directress cast a male student in one of the female featured roles.
