    I just finished watching it! It was so great! Everyone did a great job, I loved seeing so many familiar faces. I only wish I was there in the audience.

    Sweet music to my ears those words. It was an outstanding play. :eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap

    It was recorded. Here's video of the play. Skip to 30:00 for the actual start of the play.

    I don't think it was advertised well enough. I caught the last half of it and loved it. they really do need to make a movie of it so people can see what really happened in the courtrooms. I think if they would have advertised it more, more people would have seen it. I read that 200,000 people watched it live. I know that sounds like a lot, but I'm guessing that was mostly people from the LGBT community. More people that aren't in our community need to see it.

    the play it self was advertised for months, but the live stream i think only has been advertised for about a week or so before it happened.

    I think most of the people who watched it on the live feed did so because they have a vested interest in the outcome of prop 8, and support equality.

    Putting it out in the theatres would make it harder to ignore.

    for me, i clapped, even though I was alone in my apartment, when martin sheen ended the closing arguements, and when ever jane lynch showed how sue sylvestorish maggie gallagher is.
