8 am Book And all star cast of amazing actors performed this wonderful play for free because they believed in it.

  1. Director and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black escaped a repressive childhood to explore the reality of gay life in a variety of film projects, including On the Bus 2001 and the acclaimed Milk 2008 Black found an escape from his strict religious upbringing in theater, which in turn introduced him to film production, where he began his career as a filmmaker with the critically praised Journey of Jared Price 2000 and On the Bus, both of which examined identity and relationships among gay men with sensitivity and skill He returned to his roots as a writer and co producer on Big Love HBO, 2006 before penning Milk, a biographical feature on the life of San Francisco politician and activist Harvey Milk, whose life and tragic death inspired generations of gay adults to seek respect and representation for their own lives The outpouring of praise from critics and award organizations for Black s script was a clear indication that he was soon to enter the top echelon of Hollywood writers.Born in Sacramento, CA in 1979, Black was raised in a devoutly Mormon military family in San Antonio, TX before relocating to Salinas, CA after his mother s remarriage The religious and political atmosphere of his early years clashed mightily with his sexuality Black knew he was gay from an early age, but kept his true nature secret for fear of abuse at the hands of others As a result, his childhood was a secretive and deeply painful one reportedly, Black considered suicide during this formative period.He found solace in the local theater, and delved deeply into every aspect of that world from acting and technical work to apprenticing with local directors Black s passion for performance took him to UCLA s School of Theater, Film and Television, from which he graduated with honors After college, he found work in film production, first as an art director, and later as the director on various commercials and music videos He made the transition to dramatic feature work in 2000 with The Journey of Jared Price, an independent drama about a young gay man s sexual awakening which he shot over a period of five days for 30,000 It was followed by a similarly themed short film Something Close to Heaven 2000 and a documentary, On the Bus 2001 Originally intended as a six part reality series for the Digital Entertainment Network, the latter project took its initial premise a group of six gay men of diverse personalities travel by bus to partake in the hedonism of the Burning Man festival and inverted its exploitative elements to become an incisive commentary on gay stereotypes Critically acclaimed by gay and straight press alike, On the Bus helped to put Black on the map as a filmmaker.In 2003, Black produced and directed My Life with Count Dracula, a documentary about Dr Donald Reed, a horror movie fan whose dedication to the genre led to the creation of the Academy of Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror Film, as well as the Saturn Awards The gentle biopic, which examined Reed s contributions to fantasy filmmaking as well as the financial toll it took on his life, further increased Black s profile as a documentary filmmaker and led to work as a producer and director on the BBC series Faking It Channel 4, 2000 03, 2006 The program a combination of game show and reality series followed individuals as they were trained in a job completely outside of their day to day existence, after which they were judged alongside professionals in their new line of work by a panel who tried to determine who the faker in the group was A popular and award winning series in the UK, it led to several spin offs, including an American version for The Learning Channel in 2003.

  2.

  3. This play was written before the Supreme Court decision that legalized same sex marriage in the US It was a dramatization of the actual events in California after California had legalized same sex marriage and then Proposition 8 passed This was the legal case that was brought and won to declare Prop 8 unconstitutional Read by an all star cast, it shows like nothing else, just how flimsy the case against same sex marriage really was, how even the witnesses for Prop 8 had to admit their research w [...]


  4. The audio version of this is a fantastic glimpse into a groundbreaking court case.The first 85 minutes is a live recording of the play itself The remainder is a series of interviews with the all star cast, the actual lawyers who worked on the case, the play s writer and the performance s director.Fascinating to hear parts of the actual testimonies of this court case It was great that the author used the transcripts word for word, using the actual arguments put forward, or lack thereof One of the [...]


  5. All star audio recording of the play written from the court transcripts of the Proposition 8 case in California The courtroom setting and great writing acting make it easy to follow despite the listener not being able to see the actors Even though this was written before the Supreme Court decision, I still found it a valuable look at how cases like this are argued in court and how ridiculous the opposing arguments can be After the play they include separate interviews with the actors, the lawyer [...]


  6. Amazing performance by an all star powerhouse cast about a basic civil right Loved Martin Sheen and George Clooney s performances with Rob Reiner directing, the emotional side stories performed by Jane Lynch and Jamie Lee Curtis are the tearjerking heart of the story An amazing example of a great Audiobook production from L.A.Theater Works on elibrarynj


  7. It is actually funny that most of the Gay related issues are always presented with a dose of sense of humor not taking away from the importance of the topic Entertaining and definitely worth listening too


  8. Audible Library Notes here are my thought processes so i can return and re consider if I take another look at the subject Many unsubstantiated opinions.Very good information challenges etc.Most interesting There is prejudice, badly formed arguments for anti same sex marriages The same sex marriage crowd have better formed arguments But still lacking and part of their success is the lack of well formed and non prejudical arguments.Same Sex couples still seem NOT to acknowledge their non normal ap [...]


  9. So first off, yes I am biased I have relatives who married in CA during the time that same sex marriages were allowed I ve had friends in the past who dropped out of school due to severe bullying in towns where being openly gay was a no no This is an issue case I care very very much about, so feel free to take this review with a grain of salt That said this play is amazing It s funny It s sad It s real It definitely is going to appeal to people with my views than the other side though it does p [...]


  10. Historical notes On August 4, 2010, U.S District Chief Judge Vaughn Walker overturned Proposition 8, stating it is unconstitutional under the Due Process Clause because no compelling state interest justifies denying same sex couples the fundamental right to marry On February 7, 2012, a three judge panel on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a 2 1 majority opinion affirming the judgment in Perry v Schwarzenegger, which declared Proposition 8 unconstitutional, saying it violated the Equal P [...]


  11. Unbelievable audio cast Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, Vanessa Garcia, Christine Lahti, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bridger Zadina, Jensen Panettiere, Matt Bomer, Matthew Morrison, Yeardley Smith, Rory O Malley, Jesse Tyler Ferguson 3 , James Pickens, Jr, Chris Colfer, John C Reilly , George Takei, Cleve Jones, Jane Lynch, Campbell Brown It takes 3 and a half weeks of testimony from the Prop 8 case and offers it up to the audience with love, humor and compassion The cast alone is wo [...]


  12. I picked this up because I had a hankering for Martin Sheen, particularly the kind of speaches he gave often in West Wing and it was not a disappointment.It s a short listen The play itself with an AMAZING cast is really only an hour and a half with 40ish minutes of interviews with the cast, the lawers and then the writer director.Very interesting stuff.They took the original transcripts from this court case trying to overturn Proposition 8 which made gay marriage illegal in California The trans [...]


  13. A well acted audio play summarizing a three week court case over California Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state, and various character s reactions This is a wonderful example of advocacy in art I appreciated that the story was told with such humor, making the conclusions obvious and easy to understand The stutteringly realistic acting of expert witness testimony by John C Reilly was a high point of the performance, bordering on the absurd If the case was as one sided as this dr [...]


  14. Wow This made me cry and actually laugh a lot, too Because much of the dialogue is taken verbatim from the actual Prop 8 trial in California, I expected the play to be a bit drier and serious The arguments opposing gay marriage are so mind blowingly ignorant and unfounded that they re actually laugh out loud funny Blankenhorn s parts are particularly revelatory I listened to the Audible version of this with George Clooney, John C Riley, Jane Lynch, Brad Pitt, etc and the acting is obviously fan [...]

  16. 8 by Dustin Lance Black L.A Theatre Works, 2012 is a two hour audio dramatization of the 2010 federal trial in which arguments for and against California s Proposition 8 were heard That ballot initiative recognized marriage in the state as only between a man and a woman The dramatic reading before a live audience is amazing, featuring a cast of famous actors including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Christine Lahti, Jamie Lee Curtis, and George Takei The interviews with the actors, writ [...]


  17. This American play portrays the closing arguments of Perry v Schwarzenegger, a federal trial that led to the overturn of Proposition 8 an amendment eliminating rights of same sex couples to marry in California I was completely starstruck with Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, and Jamie Lee Curtis, to name a few I didn t know that, during the cross examination, the defense witnesses were unable to provide evidence to prove their claim that same sex marriage is harmful to socie [...]


  18. Play about the court challenge to Proposition 8, headed by the odd couple of David Boies and Theodore Olson, who argued against each other in Bush v Gore but are on the same side here Includes passages from court transcripts, advertisements, and interviews with the plaintiffs Cast includes George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, and George Takei.


  19. This all star production dramatized the actual court transcripts from the trial to overturn Prop 8 in California While the structure was occasionally disorienting, I found the actual contents of the play to be fascinating I wish it had been longer the play itself only comprises the first hour or so of the recording The other half are interview with the cast, production team, and the lawyers for the prosecution.


  20. Really cool how the playwright took real transcripts from the Perry v Schwarzenegger trial and other interviews to tell this story of Proposition 8 Very smart awareness campaign for anti gay discrimination One day we will look back on this and can t believe we didn t have equal rights.I have to admit, I was inclined to listen to this because of the star studded case Brad Pitt Yes, Please
