Anybody have any thoughts on how to handle negative feedback regarding choosing to perform a certain role? (The Emcee in Cabaret or the Wolf in Into the Woods, for example?) There is an actor who is also a teacher and is receiving some negative push back about having accepted such a role. Show hasn't even opened, so it isn't about his actual acting...it's about choosing to perform a role that has what the critics deem to be negative moral content.

It's not like he's actively endorsing the negative aspects of the Emcee's character and lifestyle. I've had several teachers in my shows over the years and it's never been an issue. Face it, there are always going to be naysayers. So my response is, "Let the naysayers say nay, then tell them to bug off."
