Some of the country's most acclaimed playwrights address one of the country's hottest issues in Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays. Top writers -- including Neil LaBute (reasons to be pretty), Paul Rudnick (In & Out), Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project) and Wendy MacLeod (The House of Yes) -- explore the marriage equality debate with insight and humanity. The result is a thought-provoking array of short theatrical works, ranging from raucous comedies to personal dramas. Learn More

Wonderful set design, engaging actors and a timeless tale of love. I thought all three lead actors were excellent. Because of the blond/brunette casting, I went home thoroughly convinced that Hugh Grant had played Maurice since I hadn't seen the film in nearly 25 years. From the writing and the scene structure, this did seem as though it was based on the film rather than the novel at times. And some of the direction was quite odd. I attended a preview so things might change. Still really enjoyed it but some editing could be used.
