"I have nothing against this group, or white men anywhere in the industry......"
That's very liberal and accepting of you.
Perhaps you need to revisit this statement. I have not seen the play. Perhaps the producers and the other creatives saw something in it that did not come to fruition. Or maybe they think it did but you and others do not. It is a given that women and minorities are under represented in theater. Statements like yours are not helpful in that conversation.
