So - should Brick be played by a straight actor or a gay actor? How about Marvin in Falsettos? Peter in Company? Rebecca in It Shoulda Been You? Brad, Rocky, and Frank in Rocky Horror? Or can roles like this only be played by certified bisexuals? What about roles in plays like Tea And Sympathy and The Children's Hour where dark rumors of homosexuality drive the plot? Should the roles be cast gay (to give the rumors more credibility) or straight (to prove the rumors false)?

When does this all just become ridiculous? If it hasn't already (I think it has indeed)...
