Bye Bye Birdie - Spanish Rose?

    Is there an updated version to this song at all that doesn't include so many stereotypes? Does anyone know if Concord is willing to work with people on taking some of this out or opting out of this song? It really feels weird with all of the mixtures of stereotypes that range from different spanish speaking countries and meshes them into one. Let me know if there is anyway to help update this moment in the show. Thanks for the guidance!

    Just got off the phone with Concord to find out that this song is actually not included in their version!
