I wouldn’t put it past a Hollywood stage version to inject
a same-sex marriage scene in there somewhere.
Please tell me I’m wrong.
Checking the book, the marriage happened on Mardi Gras day, and the stage play appeared to be like a Mardi Gras celebration; but I'd forgotten the Mardi Gras touch. The book had said it all (to me) with two post-wedding lines: "The best way to worship God is to love your wife" and "A little after midnight, the Gillenormand house became a temple."
I was just joking-—but can same-sex marriage scenes injected into one or another “updated” classics be too far off?
Think of all the muggings Shakespeare’s plays have taken over the years as a way to make them more ‘relevant’.
There were some ambiguously shady people at the inn during Master Of The House.
