STANDING ON CEREMONY: THE GAY MARRIAGE PLAYS will return to Largo at the Coronet Theatre for a series of Monday night performances beginning March 28 and ending June 20.

The cast for March 28 will include Peri Gilpin, Richard Kind, Wendie Malick, Kathy Najimy, and Jean Smart. Full casting for each performance will be announced at later dates.

Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays is an exciting, provocative evening of new plays by some of America's most illustrious playwrights. Responding to the on-going battle for marriage equality throughout the United States, these American writers have created an evening that is at once as insightful and stirring as it is funny and heartwarming.

The show is a compelling testimony to the wonderful struggle for commitment, compassion and humor for all people working through relationships, gay or straight.

Standing On Ceremony is conceived by Brian Shnipper and features new works from playwrights including Jordan Harrison, Moises Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Jose Rivera, Paul Rudnick, and Doug Wright. A veritable battalion of great actors has performed the plays including Matthew Broderick, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Alfre Woodard, Jason Ritter, Jason Alexander, Jean Smart, Judd Hirsch, Bradley Whitford, Julie Hagerty, John Benjamin Hickey, Camryn Manheim, Amy Brenneman, Jon Tenney and Debra Messing.

Standing On Ceremony is a theatrical event that serves as a lightening rod for raising consciousness - an advocacy piece that will also enjoy a long theatrical life as a funny, heart-felt and illuminating evening that celebrates the courage to be in a relationship - any relationship.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the work of the LA Gay & Lesbian Center in helping build support for same sex marriage both in LA and nationally.

To encourage dialogues, the production invites the audience to a "wedding reception" with wedding cake and talk immediately after each performance.
