Just a list of links so far, but this documents the ongoing controversy over yellowface on stage, lit off by an editorial on the Seattle Times op-ed page, decrying the use of 38 white and two Latino actors, but no Asian actors, in the Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society's production of The Mikado. (No editorial content, mainly because The Revue is smack dab in the middle of the action)
