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.
