Post Honestly speaking: regular editions of musicals in schools
Would there be anything wrong at all with performing the professional editions of somewhat risqué musicals, i.e. Les Mis or RENT in a public school setting for more accepting audiences? Honestly speaking, they would be very enriching to both the students and the audience.
And by somewhat risqué, I mean stuff that could be done in high schools. Not like, Cage aux Folles or Spring Awakening or something. What do you think?

Les Mis, risque? I'm surprised at that thought.... unless you're in a painfully conservative area, I'd have thought Les Mis was very acceptable. I've seen it done in a girls' high school with great success.

If you're going to do one of those shows, you might as well perform it as the author(s) intended. I say do the original show. It's better to tackle complex issues head-on than lie about/misrepresent them to young people.
