Over the weekend, I saw The Government Inspector at Seattle Shakespeare. It was quite funny, but there were a few aspects that felt dated. One thing I wanted to comment on was the casting seemed to be gender neutral, or at least had some women playing male parts and it wasn’t commented on.
I don’t know if it was a lack of good parts for women, or what. I do know it took about a minute to figure out and then it was fine. I’d prefer better female characters, but if you’re reviving old plays that don’t have them, this is pretty good.
