Even if you”re not in New York on November, you can still catch the opening night of Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, a collection of nine short plays all focusing on marriage equality. That’s because on November 7, more than 25 theaters nationwide will be staging one-off productions of the work, which includes pieces by Neil LaBute, Paul Rudnick, Moises Kaufman, Wendy McLeod and Joe Keenan.
Says Kaufman, “After the success of The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, we are thrilled to… facilitate another national convening with this beautiful collection of plays about a timely and urgent issue.”
Paper Lantern Theatre in Greensboro, NC, Brown University in Rhode Island, and the American Stage Theatre in St. Petersburg, FL are just some of the institutions involved in the nationwide undertaking. An introduction and post-performance Q&A will be broadcast from the main Minetta Lane Theatre production in NYC, which will continue its run through the end of February.
