Kelly also send along a review of the play:
"I had the opportunity to photograph a reading of '8 the Play' by Dustin Lance Black, last night at Theatre Three. The house was near full and the reading was powerful. The reading is of the transcript from the closing arguments of Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, the case that declared Proposition 8 banning gay marriage, in California as being unconstitutional.
