Maybe they can have all the actors stand behind a 3-foot wall so we can only see them from the waist up.

It seems pretty consistent in school censorship stories that a SINGLE complaint will result in censorship. What's the deal with that?
 
2013-01-03 05:38:28 PM
Utah kind of is a repeat from 1956. Mormon women wanted to make a statement about their role in the church so a bunch of them went to church in pants instead of skirts. It's a little progress-resistant bubble.

the most derpy of our most derpy state legislators was from there..

I can't blame them. I'd never heard of this Elvis guy so I googled some of his lyrics. I couldn't even bring myself to repeat them in their entirety.

So I pulled up the song list on Wikipedia for the play and the only song that I can think might cause problems in Utah is maybe "A little less conversation".

Then again, I'm not big into Elvis' music.
 
2013-01-03 06:23:03 PM
Does Utah jam the Elvis channel on satellite radio too?

BizarreMan: So I pulled up the song list on Wikipedia for the play and the only song that I can think might cause problems in Utah is maybe "A little less conversation".


The SLTrib article suggests the offensive content might be a scene where "a girl dresses up as a boy and kisses a boy." Mormons have a real stick up their collective asses when it comes to gender identity, having a lot to do with gender/sex being an inherent part of one's eternal identity and role on Earth. So for them, there is no blurring that line. Seriously, that's why Mormon women wearing pants to church was a big deal and brought backlash. They even ban cross-dressing on Halloween. Eternally grateful I wasn't born into that ideological swamp.

This. I could never have thought a song with such clear allusions to prison rape would be a hit during that time.
 
2013-01-03 06:46:57 PM
I mean, I knew a girl, right, who'd only have sex with a guy if he had a farkin' accent. Can you think of anything more ludacris in your life? So every asshole in Salt Lake City, and let me tell ya, plenty assholes in this general region, that wanna do a little of this, would get her drunk and put on some kind of stupid farking accent like 'Ello mistress, do you fancy a shag?' And there she would, farkin' knees to the sky. It was sad, it made me really sad. Poor girl had no self respect.
 
2013-01-03 06:49:21 PM
Meh, another wacky "let's not offend anyone who might cost me my job" policy.

Usually it's the "zero tolerance" edicts in public schools that make the papers.

NPR was interviewing a guy who had majored in theater at a university in Utah. They knew that every play their department staged would be shut down, it was only a matter of how many peformances they could get away with before that happened. So they would rehearse, make costumes, etc. and try to keep the location and date of the opening secret from all but a select few.

Good old Utah.

Where a guy who married a 14-year-old and who sent men on missions and then married their wives is a Prophet Of God.

But Elvis is too suggestive.

You hear that, Ohio? Can't have a Tag. Not yours.

Baby, Let's Play House Lyrics

Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby baby.
Baby, baby baby, b-b-b-b-b-b baby baby, baby.
Baby baby baby
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

Now listen to me, baby
Try to understand.
I'd rather see you dead, little girl,
Than to be with another man.

Now baby,
Come back, baby gone.
Come back, baby gone.
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

You know I almost hit the ceilin'
When I woke up and you were gone

Well I can look at you tell you ain't no child no more

Yeah, not really seeing how some suggestive songs are going to make a play that's entirely about sex already somehow be more about sex. I'm pretty sure you can't go over 100% there.
