[I would not like to offend anyone with this post, this is my opinion, if I am wrong I can be corrected and I will be happy to learn what is correct nicely]
My english could be bad, but I want to say something. Ladies, gentlemen and other kings, recently I have often encountered fans of various audiovisual media buying books about the historical figures on which they were based. In every post like this I see outrage over this and accusations of idolizing, for example, slave owners. Personally, I think that you can like a fictional character and learn about history separately without combining them with each other and praising the behavior of a historical figure. Fiction and reality are two different things. However, fiction may indicate a historical topic that will intrigue us. I believe that we shouldn't pretend that bad deeds didn't happen. We should spread awareness to sanction the mistakes of the past and learn from them to avoid these or similar heinous acts. History matters. Let people read books. I don't think that everyone grabs books about real people and imagines that they are the same as, for example, in their beloved series. These things don't logically match. We should learn history, let us make ourselves aware of what to do in the right way, and educate ourselves. People don't learn about the same figures in every country - they often don't know what they did. Let them know the truth, even when they are fans of fictional versions of these people. Nobody in their right mind will praise such figures. Please don't scream at people for reading books and wanting to know something
In conclusion:
✅ liking fictional characters and knowing history of people they were based on, which is different and important to learn
❌ idolizing bad people, because we like their fictional versions

Ian McKellen as Salieri and Tim Curry as Mozart in the 1980 Broadway production of Amadeus. McKellen won Best Actor in the Tony Awards for this. (Simon Callow played Mozart and Paul Scofield played Salieri in the original National Theatre production.) Many other actors took over the roles during the Broadway run including Mark Hamill as Mozart.
EDIT: I am informed there IS video of this, in the Lincoln Center Performing Arts Library, part of the NYPL, but you have to physically go there to view it, AND be a qualified academic researcher. Hopefully it will pass into the public domain at some point, unless some friendly soul, ahem, liberates the bits.
There is a 1983 BBC Radio adaptation with the original British cast here.

Julie Andrews burns the President of Warner Brothers during her Best Actress acceptance speech for Mary Poppins at the 1965 Golden Globes Perhaps one of the biggest scandals of Golden Age Hollywood was the decision by Jack Warner, president of Warner Brothers, to cast Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in the movie adaptation of My Fair Lady instead of Julie Andrews. Julie originated the role of Eliza on Broadway and in London - which has been heralded as one of the most difficult Broadway characters of all time - for three straight years, stunning audiences around the world. To provide some modern perspective, My Fair Lady was the Hamilton of its time, selling millions of copies of the Broadway recording in a matter of months, every single Broadway and London show sold-out for its entire record-breaking run. To everyone at the time, Julie was Eliza Doolittle, so to see her passed up for the movie adaptaion sent shockwaves through Hollywood. However, because Jack passed on Julie for the role, Walt Disney was able to cast her in Mary Poppins, for which she won both a Golden Globe and an Oscar. Julie stated of the Golden Globes night: "I suddenly realized that if Jack Warner had asked me to do My Fair Lady, which I missed out on, I would never have been able to do Mary Poppins." Her dig - deft, quick, and spoken in her classically sweet nature - took enormous courage, delivering it to the most powerful man in Hollywood in front of all his peers. A member of the audience stated: "Everybody screamed. It was like a thunderous scream, everyone was laughing [including Jack Warner, pictured above]. That was her little sweet revenge."

I could write about how capitalism is ruining our society by privatizing everything, including self-expression and art, and, in this case, theatre, going so far that you not only have to pirate broadway shows but have to give them weird vague titles in order to keep them up on the internet, and the fact that this makes it so difficult to find these videos for people who don't have the needed knowledge about this tricks.
Or I could just laugh about the funny silly titles bootlegs get

Race: I didn’t do it!
Davey: That’s what everyone says when they did do it
Race: So if I said I did it would you think I didn’t
Race: Because if I did but I didn’t then did I not if I did?
Davey: What what?

Can we talk about how a broadway actress, who nobody outside of the theatre community really knew about, just won an Oscar? Can we talk about rare this is? Can we talk about how once given the spotlight this young woman gave one of the best performances of all time and was recognized for it? As a theatre nerd, this is incredible and the fact that the world now knows the girl we used to call “the bullet” as an Oscar winner? I’m floored. Ariana DeBose, I hope your spotlight only continues to grow, but never forget broadway!
