I don't know if this veers the conversation too off-topic but for me, this argument is somewhat related to the trend of casting sexy young men as classic nerds, as we've seen with Jonathan Groff and now Jeremy Jordan as Seymour in Little Shop...coincidentally also directed by Michael Mayer. Or Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer as the Ginsburgs in that RBG film.

Yes, they're all wonderfully talented actors. But I feel we're gradually being deprived of young character actors to play these leading character roles. There's just a genuinely quirky authenticity that's getting lost.

Of course, Hollywood has always insisted on glamorized casting with beautiful/handsome stars playing ordinary characters. But I'm sad that more and more, NY theater is following this trend. Everything is getting sanded down to a boring blandness.
