A Queer One, Quieter And Deeper Than A Well

Hi! I'm Pip, and I bet I haven't made a hello post yet, so hello! I'm a twenty year-old actress, I've been in three shows; Cabaret (U/S Sally Bowles), Seussical (Gertrude McFuzz), and I'm currently Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls. So, I don't have tons of experience, and I really want to make sure I make all the right decisions for the right reasons...

Have any of you, who have had to act with a romantic lead, ever felt threatened and uncomfortable with your co-star? 'My' Sky Masterson, during our songs, has been putting his hands all over my back, arms, and waist. Some of it does not make sense, because the audience wouldn't see it. The problem is, because while he is doing this, I get thrown out of character because I think "Is he making my bra strap show?"

I also do not feel comfortable because (please note, this is "in character"):
a) This is the 50s. That kind of courting is not acceptable.
b) I am a good, proper girl, who works in the line of God. You bet your behind I wouldn't take that!
c) We've only known each other for a matter of days. Even though I am still a little drunk, and earlier I would've done non-christian things with you, I still don't think it's proper.
d) The audience cannot see this. I think you're feeling my bra just because you can.

And his wife is playing Adelaide! I'm just not having fun with this show like I thought I would!

This is my question. Is it really worth it to bring it up with the director? I really don't want to seem like a Diva. Also, if this is not an appropriate discussion, I will delete the post.

x-posted everywhere, because inquiring minds would like to know.
