(I'm just glad they won't be deciding on the leading man by toss of a coin! ;D )
Why? The two female characters are a sort of game with the different aspects of personality, I think it would be a good surprise for the audience: Which facets of Rufus's acting can we get this evening? Oh, this evening 'serene and remote' - yay. This evening 'expressive and extravagant' - yay. And they might run to buy a new ticket to see the "other Rufus". And if I remember well the maths in school - it might never happen. Oh ah, yes, I see now what you meant, Kissmekate. ;D
YAY!!!! I'm so happy for him! I know he's been wanting to go back to the theatre for a while and he must be so happy about all this! And what a cool way to go about deciding the leading lady for each performance! I'm sure that'll make each performance exciting for him. I too won't be able to make it over there but I hope that this role will bring him many more theatrical roles in the future. I just hope there isn't such a huge gap again between this stage role and the next!

“Odd people do good things. There are good and bad in all people and that’s why it’s worth appealing to the good in people. Some prickly characters do some great things and some quite affable and nice characters do bad things. We’re a mixed bunch, you know, and this is about human beings doing something great.” -- RS on AG
