I've never read Rostand's play but aren't the two young ingenues meant to be just that, archetypes of young ingenues. Not complications of the idea of young ingenues, like Romeo and Juliet but the form itself, almost with the painted canvas and scaffolding showing. I don't think there's an archetype yet of young gay lovers, something that everyone is so familiar with that a playwright chooses that shorthand to bring the audience into the world of storybook fables. Do LGBT people even want to enter the world of storybook fables? Not me.
