    OMG, she's already singing the role. She just doesn't get cast in it.

    This is apropos of nothing, you understand: I just think you will enjoy it.

      She could totally sing that role. I mean, she could sing anything, but I think that score especially lends itself to her voice. Well, maybe some day... They should do one of those PBS concert-style performances of the show. Then no one would watch except liberal eggheads like us who would accept her in the role anyway.

        I thought they should cast her -- and the captain -- and just put it in a different country. (Black in Germany during WWII is almost as much a death sentence as Jewish there and then.)

        But what if Maria came from, oh, I dunno, Peru? Or Brazil? What if the score was the same, and the place/time were changed?

        (And the Alps. Maybe the Sierras? the Andes?)
