Hair, Broadway, and the N-Bomb

"Hair" has two songs that use racial slurs in a major way ("Colored Spade" and "Three-Five-Zero-Zero"). The most recent Broadway Maven Weekly Blast looks at the reasons and repercussions of shows with that word, including "Assassins," "Big River," and "Ragtime."

Can you think of others? Should any of them be changed or altered given 2022 values? One thing unlikely to happen again: the word was repeatedly used in Hair's performance at the 1969 Tony broadcast.
