Stars help George Clooney in gay marriage play '8'

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- A star-studded group of A-listers will help George Clooney perform in the Los Angeles premiere of the gay marriage play "8."

The groups Broadway Impact and American Foundation for Equal Rights say Jamie Lee Curtis, Martin Sheen, Yeardley Smith, George Takei, Matt Bomer, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and several others will also perform.

The play is based on the trial transcript and interviews from 2010's court fight over California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8. It will be performed as a reading at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre for one night only, March 3.

The play made its world premiere on Broadway last year starring Morgan Freeman, Anthony Edwards, John Lithgow and Cheyenne Jackson. More than 40 readings are scheduled in more than 17 states.
