Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays
By Raef Harrison
Theatres across the country are joining forces to raise support and money for the gay marriage movement. On November 7th, participating theaters will raise the curtain on Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, conceived by Brian Shnipper and directed by Stuart Ross.
More than 25 theatres and universities are confirmed to participate, in 19 states across America including: Texas, North Dakota, Florida, Kansas and Michigan, where both gay marriage and civil unions are banned; North Carolina, where the vote on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage was moved up to 2012; California, where gay marriage was legalized and then overturned by the passage of Proposition 8 in 2008; and many states where marriage equality is not yet a reality.
In New York City the play will open and have an extended run at the Minetta Lane Theatre. For information about participating theatres and ticket prices across the country, visit the show's Facebook page
