Oscar Wilde http://kcur.org en Actor Jim Korinke Plays Against Type - And Gender http://kcur.org/post/actor-jim-korinke-plays-against-type-and-gender <p>At one point or another, most theater troupes buck tradition by employing the concept of non-traditional casting - that is, hiring actors to play roles written for a different age, gender or race. One example coming to Broadway in April is a version of &quot;A Streetcar Named Desire&quot; with an African-American cast.
