I look forward to seeing this production. I did see a University production back in the mid-90's, where Tom and Jim were suggested to be a couple. Not one word was added to the text, but Jim would walk on with Tom before each of the monologues, as if he was walking Tom home. It was very subtle, but it made perfect sense when Jim got married that Tom ran off to join the Merchant Marines. I thought it was a lovely interpretation of the piece.
