Academy Award-winning screenwriter Black dramatizes the lawsuit filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights against the state of California following the passage of Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. The dialog comes directly from court transcripts and interviews with the plaintiffs. Rob Reiner directs a stellar cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Kevin Bacon, Martin Sheen, John C. Reilly, Christine Lahti, and Jamie Lee Curtis in this live recording. This production deserves a standing ovation. (LJ 6/1/12)
