  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays

    You Won the Right to Wed; Now Comes the Tough Part

    Charles Isherwood

    November 14, 2011: It would not be inappropriate to bring a few handfuls of rice to toss at the climax of “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays,” a collection of monologues and short plays that opened on Sunday night at the Minetta Lane Theater. This mostly genial, often funny omnibus is essentially a staged celebration of the recent advances in winning marital rights for gay and lesbian couples, and how the changing laws are changing lives.

    NY Review: 'Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays'

    David Sheward

    November 14, 2011: How do you address a topic as complex and weighty as gay marriage in a 10-minute play without being superficial? It sounds like an impossible task. That was the challenge presented to eight playwrights for "Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays," a program of short pieces conceived by Brian Shnipper that began life in Los Angeles and recently had simultaneous one-night productions at over 40 theaters across the country. Now in an Off-Broadway open-ended engagement at the Minetta Lane Theatre, "Ceremony" puts a human face on a hot-button issue and delivers laughter and tears rather than propaganda.

    Jonathan Mandell

    November 13, 2011: One couple decides to call each other brooms, a combination of groom and bride, and even orders a wedding cake with two little brooms on top. When it comes to same-sex marriage, you can’t be standing on ceremony.

    Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays

    Dan Bacalzo

    November 14, 2011: The passage of same-sex marriage rights in New York earlier this year has further fueled the national debate over the subject of marriage equality. And so the Off-Broadway premiere of the highly entertaining collection of short works, "Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays", at the Minetta Lane Theatre, seems particularly well-timed.

    'Standing on Ceremony' plays poignant and funny

    Mark Kennedy

    November 13, 2011: Overtly political plays tend to be preachy, and getting a dose of nine of them in one sitting doesn't sound like an entertaining proposition. But "Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays" turns those assumptions on their head.
