There’re plenty musicals, where race doesn’t matter, but I’m totally against color-blind casting in POTO, Les Mis and other shows where it harms the historical authenticity.

Wow. Really on point there. I mean, it’s not as if France has been interacting with the African continent since the 8th century, ESPECIALLY not to the point where French is listed as an official language for several large countries. And as we know, there was absolutely NO cultural mingling between Africa and France, especially none where Africans were integrated into French society. And CERTAINLY not to the point of being of high historical, social, and political status. 
Hell, it’s not like there were any black artists of any kind in the 19th century.  The idea of black people being artists just hadn’t even been invented yet! And as we all know, there were absolutely no POC in the original Phantom of the Opera novel by Gaston Leroux, most definitely none that played major roles and altered the course of the plot. 
Good on you, OP. Truly you stand to uphold the gold standard of historical accuracy!


I AM SO ANGRY


Norm Lewis is going to sing like an angel because that’s what he does and he should be cast in roles like this for the exact reason you have a problem with it. Nothing about him should impact anyone’s judgment on his portrayal of this iconic character or of the production. It shouldn’t fucking matter.

introducing: babbuvengers

i know a dozen ppl were waiting for this but it remained a secret until now hawhawhaw :3

keep in mind they’re just tots so i didn’t want hulk to beat loki up, so the nature of their fight shifted to a lego battle

I will fund this movie in it’s entirety if that’s what it took for Marvel to make it
