After enjoying a summer romance, high school students Danny and Sandy are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High. There Sandy must contend with cynical Rizzo and the Pink Ladies in attempt to win Danny's heart again.
Let's face it, we all know that the population wants a skinny white girl for Sandy, and a physically fit white guy for Danny. Watching it, you see every POC or plus size dancer/singer get booted off until it's just white people.
I'll have more respect or interest in a show like this if they are more diverse. Hell, they had a white guy play a Siamese King in the King and I, why not have a POC play Sandy or Danny? OH right, because "they're not what anyone apparently wants".
I know they did an "Annie" too. Pretty sure a cute white girl is going to win that one too.
Don't waste your time with these shows, they aren't progressive at all.
Sure, they'll let POC audition, but that doesn't mean they have to consider them or select them. At what point, does the viewership actually decide, and the producers do? Who says that any of the voting is honored?
