Differences from the Original[]

There are many key differences in this production to the original Broadway version:

  • Quite a few scenes of spoken dialogue are added in.
  • Certain elements are toned down, such as the lyrics that contained harsher cuss words.
  • The description of Tom Collins as an anarchist is missing.
  • F*ck is entirely absent.
  • The riot at the end of Act One is changed to a "party".
  • Most of Angel's masculine pronouns are taken out, although a few still remain.
