Post Female Jack/Wolf?
I recently saw an audition notice for ITW that said that the roles for Jack and Wolf might potentially have women cast in them. How do you think that might go off?

I could maybe see Jack cast as a woman, like Peter Pan. But the Wolf is supposed to be male. It also would take away some of the symbolism because he is usually doubled with Cinderella's Prince (to show that both are similar with their unquenchable appetites).
