Casting Controversy Shadows La Jolla Playhouse's 'Nightingale'

I'm a local Asian American actor and generally I would agree that multi-cultural casting is a good thing. But over and over again I see that this type of casting never works in favor of the Asian actor. I wonder if they would have cast a Scottish fairytale with Asian actors. If they truly want The Nightingale to be multi-cultural, they should consider using multi-cultural costuming and character names.
