When I first heard the original cast album in the 60s, it was exciting, at least the music was. Now the misogyny that is the foundation of the plot makes us ask the question, "Who wants to be entertained by THIS?" What might salvage the show for a brief run would be a subtly feminist, ironic slant in the staging. Would it merit the effort?
