THE INHERITANCE - Straight Actors in Gay Roles
Posted by: StaunchKarakter 04:01 pm EDT 10/05/19

Was googling some of the fine young actors in this show after seeing part 1, and I found that several of them identify as straight.

It strikes me as odd that this sort of casting is still happening - and especially with a gay lifestyle/history play like this. Also, makes the Sean Penn/Harvey Milk line feel particularly awkward.

I'm not yet able to articulate the nuances as to why this feels "wrong" to me. Is this something that matters? Would love to hear thoughts regarding this on either side of the argument.
