One can really go overboard with political correctness; part of that mentality might also be leading to a boiling over on the part of people who say "politically incorrect" things -- the really outrageous, bigoted things they used to say in private, now sometimes are said quite publicly on social media and other less covert places, starting at the top Office of the Land. Would these folks who did the concert re-do the lyrics to a song on a similar theme, "How Lovely to Be a Woman" from "Bye Bye Birdie" as well?

How did they come up with the name "Red Bucket Follies" to replace the old one, which was "Gypsy of the Year"? There are enough famous shows with the name "Follies" in them. Didn't "Legacy of the Year" pass muster since that's what they re-named the award? Maybe Hyacinth Bucket objects to the color red! I think she was more partial to blue periwinkle. :)
