Directed by John Manzelli, the cast also includes Steve Trovillion, Elizabeth Dimon, Christopher De Paola and Elena Garcia. Jazz singer Nicole Henry makes a special appearance at the June 22 and 24 performances.
Here's how producers characterize the show: "From the potential spouses, to the impact vows have on friends, family and colleagues, Standing On Ceremony presents all perspectives and points of view. Witty, warm and occasionally wacky, these plays are vows to the blessings of equality, the universal challenges of relationships and the often hilarious power of love."
Among the writers whose works are featured are Obie Award winner Mo Gaffney, Heideman Award winner Jordan Harrison, Tony Award nominee Moisés Kaufman, Emmy and WGA Award winner Joe Keenan, Tony Award nominee Neil LaBute, Sundance Jury Prize winner Wendy MacLeod, Obie Award winner José Rivera, Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Paul Rudnick and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright.
Standing On Ceremony is presented by City Theatre and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Performances include a post-show wedding reception with music and a wedding cake. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Equality Florida.
