My thoughts exactly. I was expecting Rebecca Luker and Karen Ziemba and Alice Ripley or similar in the female roles and Burke Moses and Brian D'arcy James and Patrick WIlson in the male roles. I have been dream casting this show in my head for 20 years. I am not disappointed, I just hadn't really contemplated casting it "young" like they have. It's great material, with LOTS of character parts. I hope they make the most of it AND they record the whole thing.
