i guess im also just frustrated with like how obsessed broadway is with finding young attractive people for all their roles because it completely alienates people from relating to their stories, especially if its supposed to be a story of regular people. like i loved sutton foster in violet and violet is one of my favorite musicals but the whole point of her character was that she was considered ugly by all of society. taking makeup off of an otherwise conventionally attractive white woman didn’t feel at all relevant to that story and it was disappointing. even dead west spring awakening, which broke HUGE ground for disabled performers, still kept all their actors very conventionally attractive, and it ended up with people that didn’t really look like insecure, gawky, pimply teenagers.
that’s why kinky boots, despite its somewhat basic storyline, was so much fun- it had people of all ages and sizes. it didn’t get noticed for that but i (and my mom, who doesnt watch a whole lot of theater nowadays) loved the way it felt like a real group of people.
