Storyline

Ann is excited to be performing in a new Broadway revue. Her specific sketch is a comic one where she portrays a Mexican woman complete with Spanish accent and Mexican stereotypical behavior. What she is unaware of is that a lobby group, calling itself Dignitales (Spanish for Dignities), is trying to have that sketch taken out of the show for its offensive nature. The producer, George Phillips, refuses their demands. What they are all unaware of is that Felix, Ann's leading man, is also part of Dignitales, he doing whatever he can from behind the scenes to have the sketch removed from the show, or at least have it changed so that he and other Mexicans would not be offended by it. When Ann learns about the group and Felix's involvement in it, Ann, who agrees with their stance after hearing the arguments, has to decide what to do. On the one hand, she now agrees that the sketch is offensive. On the other hand, she has signed a contract and as an actress she feels compelled to do her ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The issue of stereotypes and cultural representation is brought to the forefront. Ann's participation in a sketch with a Spanish accent is called into question when the actor working with her helps her see some of the ways such things are offensive. His opinions are counterpointed by the antics of the main cast, who simply hadn't considered the larger ramifications of their choices. See more »
