What it is to be a great big wet liberal

I unexpectedly went to see The Producers tonight, at our local theatre. I kind of knew that the Gentleman Friend wanted to go & see it, but I hadn't really twigged when. Well it was tonight.

And I got so conflicted over Springtime for Hitler! It was a huge over the top production number, and it was really well done. But all the time I was watching it, I was thinking "this whole scene would be totally illegal, if it were being done in Germany".

But it *was* remarkably well done.

Well, not entirely: http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1899631,00.html it doesn't say exactly what happens with THAT part of Springtime for Hitler but it sounds like they skated awfully close to the edge of the law elsewhere.

There was a whole bunch of stuff in the news last year I think about the Producers being staged in Germany. Interesting stuff.
