MARISA TOMEI & MORGAN FREEMAN Team Up For Broadway Play!
Morgan Freeman and Marisa Tomei are heading for the Broadway stage for one night only, as part of a fundraising play about California’s overturned same-sex marriage law – according to Variety!
Joining the Oscar winners are Cheyenne Jackson, Anthony Edwards and Yeardley Smith, in a read through of ‘8‘ – a play written by ‘Milk‘ scribe Dustin Lance Black.
The production centres on the legal efforts by officials at the American Foundation for Equal Rights to overturn the controversial Proposition 8 bill, which outlawed gay unions in the state, just months after its legalisation in 2008.
Joe Mantello will direct the play and is due to take place at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on 19 September, 2011 – for one night only!
