Gay Marriage Is Now A Night Of Plays With Mark Consuelos!
It was inevitable that gay marriage should come to the legit stage, so in this week's column, I talk about the result:
Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, an evening of short works with a rotating cast including Mark Consuelos, who plays a gay whose mother is pressuring him to get married, even though he doesn't have a boyfriend!
For the column, I talked to three of the noted playwrights involved in this project -- Paul Rydnick, Doug Wright, and Neil LaBute
By the end of it, I was ready to marry all three!
Plus Mark Consuelos!
Anyway, the main issue that comes up is whether the advent of gay marriage and inclusion in general make gays a tiny bit boring.
As the Pulitzer-winning Wright told me, "There is something glamorous about a gay outlaw, even if it seems a bit retro."
