Asian Peter Pan

The Pittsburgh Ballet is performing Peter Pan, and both Peter and Wendy are Asians. I think that's pretty neat casting and hope it sets a trend for unconventional casting, especially of lead roles.

I look forward to the day when casting is done largely without regard to ethnicity.
So, Ray. Did you try out for the part? Was there some ballet in your past? Hey, what do I know. You write, you sing, you act. Maybe there's more to you than you're letting on. Anyway, Peter Pan sounds good. I haven't been to a ballet since 1985.
