'Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays' coming to off-Broadway

Posted on

Standing On Ceremony
Chuck Green

Producers announced today that Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, the hit L.A. production about the fight for marriage equality in the United States, will make its way to NYC this fall. The anthology play features nine works by some of today’s top wordsmiths — including Neil LaBute (Fat Pig), Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations), and Doug Wright (Grey Gardens) — and inspired EW writer Tanner Stransky to call it “just as much a theater experience as it is a crusade to illuminate the precarious, confusing, maddening, and — yes — oftentimes hilarious position that gays and lesbians find themselves in when it comes to getting hitched legally.”

Like in L.A., off-Broadway’s Standing will feature a rotating group of actors. (Casting has yet to be announced.) Previews begin Oct. 8, with an official opening night planned for Oct. 24. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to marriage equality organizations.
