I have mostly seen this done in straight theater and opera. In NYC the Transport Group had an older woman play Emily in Our Town. I like theater so I will accept a pretty wide range of conventions because it increases the possibility of having a good time.
Again, it you get to choose what conventions you will accept. Why choose to not accept a dark skinned actor in a role usually played by a light skinned actor?
