I had the pleasure of going to the Saturday night show. It was a great show! One of the main characters..Maria..was excellent!! I do wonder though...why they cut out a part in one of the songs...that is.. "everythings free in America, if you are white in America." Maybe they thought it was too racist? But...then they were using the negative word "spic" throughout the show, so they cant use the racism card...because that is a very racist name. Either way..it was a great show! My thanks to Kristina Stasi, aka Maria...for a wonderful performance!!
