I utterly despise modern colleges, and have even called for my alma mater, UW-Eau Claire to be closed thanks to it's miserable graduation rate. But you'd think of all colleges, Brandeis would know better than to censor a play about Lenny Bruce, whose papers are kept there. There's been a lot written about this incident, but I've chosen this link as having the most concise summary of what happened.
This is why I'm an independent producer. No board of directors, no public funding. When the women, minorities, identitarians and other illiterati come around telling me my productions "offend" them, I can tell them to shove it.
