Casting Controversy Shadows La Jolla Playhouse's 'Nightingale'

In conjunction with the casting controversy, I would like to raise another issue; the purpose of page to stage. Morphing from the first play "I am My Own Wife", which I felt embodied the stated purpose of this kind of production, "
The Nightingale" seemed to be a quite finished, slick "Broadway bound" production masquerading as a work in progress. The elaborate costumes and production techniques seemed to me not much different than a regular La Jolla Playhouse production cloaked in the guise of being page to stage to make the audience feel they actually had some input.
