So staff are being brought on to eliminate offensive language and portrayals? Some seem to be selective in their editing. While I loved the revival of THE MUSIC MAN and appreciated the new lyrics to “Shipoopi,” I cringed and bristled on hearing the old antisemitic “Jew’s harp” lyric in the “Rock Island” opening number. They could easily have substituted the synonymous “jaw harp” or “mouth harp” but chose not to. I even wrote to the new lead producer about this, to no avail. Must the language refer only to persons of color or the gender fluid to be rethought?
