    I was wondering if anyone has seen or done a production of OOTI with an
    all white cast? Did it work? How were the racial lines drawn? I love this show and would really like to produce it locally, but could never cast it
    as it was originally performed.
    Feel free to comment on this...... I know I'm asking for it, and no, I
    don't think its the same as doing an all white version of Porgy and Bess
    or Dreamgirls.


    This show can work as an all white cast. Instead of a race theme, make it a class theme, upper and lower. change "black blood" to "low blood" There are other lines that need to be changed that I can't recall off the top of my head. I did this show
    and still have the score with our changes to suit an all white cast. If you need to know them, I'll look them up for you
