Connecticut High school Musical Stirs Controversy After 2 Men Kiss During Performance
A Connecticut high school musical causes a public walkout after two men in the cast kissed during the performance.
It happened during the “Zanna Don’t!” musical at Hartford Public High School last Friday.
“It’s a balancing act of individual values and the expectations of the school … (and) it was interesting, actually, seeing the apprehension,” Johnson explained.
“Zanna Don’t!” depicts life at the fictitious Heartsville High, where students with academically-charged interests sit atop the popularity echelon while football players are the outcasts, and heterosexuals must conceal their sexual preference to avoid public scrutiny.
During the show, two men in the cast share a brief kiss — a lip lock that became a great point of contention.
“There was a public walkout by a bunch of students (when the kiss happened) … mostly male,” Johnson said. “It was visually evident (due to the jerseys the team was wearing) that a lot of football players got up and walked out. It was almost a symbolic kind of thing.”
Wtf? I need more details on this? It sounds a little blown out of proportion…Regardless congrats to the kids for putting it on!!!
