RE: Black and White and now crazy
He's getting a lot of support from everyone but it's confusing that Edward Albee presumably gave approval to the Oregon Shakespeare festival but the Albee Estate, which is supposed to speak in Albee's behalf said no, you have to recast the show with a white actor. Pffffft. No.

The black actor, by the way, is a wonderful guy. Rather shy and an amazing professional opera singer. A great guy.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

So apparently the Edward Albee Estate will sue us if we cast a black actor. That's unreal.

This is all playing out in real time here. The local NAACP has asked hubby to come and make a speech about diversity in the arts and we've gotten emails and facebook comments from theatre companies around the country to keep up the good fight.

Here's the Buzzfeed article.

The black actor surrounding all this is taking this in stride. He's a very articulate person. Wonderful guy.

I wonder what law they will use to back up that position?
