Last month, as you may remember, we announced some casting developments surrounding the staged reading of 8, the highly anticipated play written by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk).
On Saturday, March 3, some of the biggest names from film and TV (just look at that roster above) will gather together at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in L.A. for a one-night-only event that will surely draw the attention of Hollywood, Washington, and the rest of the world.
The story of 8 -- which chronicles the historic trial in the federal legal challenge of California's Proposition 8 -- is framed by the trial's historic closing arguments in June 2010, but features the best arguments and witness testimony presented by both legal teams.
Scenes include reenactments of many of the well-documented jaw-dropping moments of trial, such as the admission by the Prop. 8 supporters' star witness David Blankenhorn that "we would be more American on the day we permitted same-sex marriage than we were on the day before."
What we're curious to know is: Who are Jane Lynch and Jamie Lee Curtis playing? And George Clooney, who may or may not be coming off the high of winning an Oscar the week before, will surely have our undivided attention.
