“The hunger of gay men to see their lives reflected onstage and in other entertainment forms has been diminished by increased visibility in mainstream culture. [Second Stage artistic director Carole] Rothman isn’t so sure gays are a natural bet anymore. She compares the shift to casting trends: “I’ve noticed recently that actors don’t want to be labeled as black, Hispanic, gay, whatever. I’m seeing that now a bit with audiences, too. They don’t want to be ghettoized. It’s a feeling of ‘I’m just a person. Don’t label me.'”
