Broadway Will Celebrate NY Gay Marriage Law With On Stage Wedding

The St. James Theater in Broadway home of the hit musical “Hair” will become a gay wedding venue.

The Associated Press reports:

The Broadway theater where “Hair” is being performed this summer will be the stage where some same-sex couples will be married on July 25, the day after gay marriage becomes legal in the state.

Rory O’Malley, a star of “The Book of Mormon” and a co-founder of the gay-rights group Broadway Impact, said several gay couples from the Broadway community will be married on stage right after that evening’s performance of “Hair.”

“It’s not just a summer of love,” he said at a press conference Wednesday in front of the St. James Theater, where the touring revival of the hippie musical has landed. “It’s a summer of equality.”

Other theater celebrities on hand for the announcement included Joel Grey from “Anything Goes,” the cast of “Hair” and Will Swenson from “Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the Musical.”
