AMISTAD THE MUSICAL: PURGATORY FOR STRAIGHT SOUTHERN GENTLEMEN

Smile!

A reworked version of Amistad, an opera about an 1839 slave ship rebellion, will be performed at the 2008 Spoleto Festival USA, in Charleston South Carolina. However it is feared the heart wrenching story and dramatic performance will be overlooked as the entire crowd awkwardly stares at their feet and wristwatch.

I just hope there didn't add a big tap dance scene.

PS: It's actually a really cool art festival.
