Another age-based recasting concept would be to cast all senior citizens in a particular play. I think this would be especially poignant with something that explores the hopes and explorations of youth. A cast of senior citizens would illuminate the wistful wisdom and nostalgic melancholy already at the heart of The Fantasticks. It could be feature people who starred at some point in the original production. Rita Gardner for Louisa, please!
