Cast members Mark Consuelos and Harriet Harris performed an excerpt from Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, at a press event at the Minetta Lane Theatre on Tuesday, October 18.
This evening of one-act plays, conceived by Brian Shnipper, includes works by playwrights Jordan Harrison, Jeffrey Hatcher, Moisés Kaufman, Joe Keenan, Neil LaBute, Wendy McLeod, José Rivera, Paul Rudnick and Doug Wright. As previously reported, the cast will also include Craig Bierko and Polly Draper.
The work, which is being produced by Joan Stein and Richard Frankel, will receive its Off-Broadway premiere at the Minetta Lane, with previews beginning November 7, and an opening set for November 13. The production will partner with Freedom to Marry, the campaign to win marriage nationwide, and will donate a portion of all ticket sales to that organization, as well as others promoting marriage equality.
Evan Wolfson, founder and President of Freedom to Marry, was also in attendance at the press event.
