Watch: Dustin Lance Blacks’ ‘8’ starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon, Chris Colfer, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Matthew Morrison, John C. Reilly

If, like me, you missed the live stream of the one-night only performance of Dustin Lance Black‘s “8” at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in LA, we’re in luck because we can watch it below.  

The play featured an all-star cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon, Matt Bomer, Campbell Brown, Chris Colfer, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Vanessa Garcia, Cleve Jones, Christine Lahti, Matthew Morrison, Rory O’Malley, James Pickens, Jr., John C. Reilly, Rob Reiner, Yeardley Smith and George Takei.
“8” is written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and directed by actor and director Rob Reiner and is an account of the case filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights (AFER ) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8 [LINK], a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, 8 provides an intimate look what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.

The video says it’s 2 hours long but it actually starts at the 30 minute mark.
