George Clooney and All Star Cast Shine in Prop 8 Play Reading
My husband Mark and I just finished watching the Prop 8 Play live from Los Angeles, featuring an amazing array of stars, from George Clooney and Martin Sheen as Olson and Boies to the amazing Jane Lynch as Maggie Gallagher with a stare that could stop a truck.

But the emotional core of the night's performance was carried by Christine Lahti as one of the four prop 8 plaintiffs, especially when she spoke movingly about how her sister's death at a young age inflamed in her a desire to be a mother, and how, the defense attorney's claims notwithstanding, how much she had fought for the chance to be a mother to her two twin sons.

The play also laid bare the pathetic nature of the defense witnesses, especially in the performance of George Takei, who got one of the best laughs of the night, and the clueless brilliance of John C. Reilly, who ultimately functioned as a witness for the plaintiffs.

Both Clooney and Sheen were fantastic, with Clooney saying more with a stare than many actors could manage with ten lines, and Brad Pitt, a late addition, brought just the right amount of skepticism to the role of Judge Walker.

After the play, the real plaintiffs and attorneys took the stage, and made the point that if marriage equality's opponents hadn't fought so hard and long to keep the video tapes of the trial under lock and key, this amazing night might never have happened.

And the play reminded us - "the stand is a lonely place to lie."

The full play should be posted live soon - we'll add it or a link to it here as soon as we can.
