Immediately following Friday's 8:00 PM performance of Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, the show's cast helped a fan surprise her longtime girlfriend with a marriage proposal, marking the show's first same-sex engagement.
Responding to one of the defining issues of our day -- the on-going battle for marriage equality throughout the United States -- some of America's most illustrious and Award-winning playwrights, including Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moisés Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod, José Rivera, Paul Rudnick and Doug Wright have created a hilarious and poignant 90-minute evening of short plays that celebrates the courage to be in a relationship - any relationship. The show officially opened at the Minetta Lane Theatre on November 13, 2011 and will end its run on Sunday, December 18, 2011.
