Well, I just learned that Glenn Close played men in addition to female roles.

Removing examples that should fall under Cross-Dressing Voices as so:

[The other King of the Hill example is valid and shall be retained]
  • Bob's Burgers reverses the women-as-boys trend, with both wife Linda and pubescent daughter Tina being played by men.

Also, is there any difference between Reasons 1 (All male Theater Troupes due to Moral Guardians) and 6 (All male University Troupes from back when only males could be students due to Moral Guardians) in the description? I am seriously considering combining these reasons and rearranging the others using words like "conversely" and "similarly".

I'd go ahead and combine them. Also, #9 is pretty confusing. I think it should probably be rewritten to emphasize stuff like how the part of a boy might be played by an adult woman to avoid various "child actor" problems (hard to find good ones, child labor law complications, etc.)

It's not just Original Cast Precedent in Chicago (the musical); Billy's summation ends with The Reveal that Mary Sunshine is really a man.
