We’ve got some big game heading into Windsor Village come March 3rd – leading man George Clooney has agreed to star in a one-night production of “8”, a Rob Reiner (Bucket List, A Few Good Men, Stand By Me) directed show based on the courtroom drama surrounding the Proposition 8 gay marriage ban in California. An earlier version of the play, written by Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J.Edgar) was staged in NYC, and this west coast one-off should be a hot ticket.
The show will benefit the American Foundation for Equal Rights and tickets start at $500, with a $1,000 ticket buying you entrance into a post-show reception with celebrities.
Read the story in the Huffington Post, or a transcript from the KPCC Madaeline Brand Show.
