Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays was conceived by Brian Shnipper, and began as a series of benefit events in Los Angeles before an Off-Broadway engagement last fall. It consists of nine, 10-minute plays written by an impressive team of writers. The team includes Emmy Award® winner Mo Gaffney, Heideman Award winner Jordan Harrison, Edgar Award winner Jeffrey Hatcher, Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony Award® nominee Neil LaBute, Sundance Jury Prize winner Wendy MacLeod, Obie Award winner José Rivera, Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Paul Rudnick, Tony Award® nominee Moisés Kaufman and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner Doug Wright. Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays has been described as insightful and stirring as it is funny and heartwarming.
Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays will be appearing at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts Thursday and Friday, June 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, June 23 at 7 and 10 p.m. and Sunday, June 24 at 3 p.m. A portion of all proceeds of this production will be donated to Equality Florida, continuing a practice established in the original production of contributing show proceeds to an organization that promotes the issue of marriage equality.
