Hi, everyone! I spent this past weekend with one of my best friends who I hadn't seen in a while, and he happens to be in the musical theatre community. I was talking with him about how I feel like people with disabilities are still struggling to be cast in film and television. He mentioned to me that the theatre community is pretty ahead of the curve with this, casting people with disabilities not only in roles of characters who have disabilities, but even in roles of those who do not. This was really exciting to hear and not something that I realized, since I don't pay very close attention to theatre. Just thought I'd share!
