    So sad that they couldn’t even cast ONE middle eastern person in this play. Disgusting.

    @sara: Why does it always have to be about race and ethnicity? Maybe there were no qualified actors or actresses from the MidEast.

    @55vineyard: Because Aladdin is about a character who actually is ethnic lol.
