Hairweddings

Last night at the St. James Theatre on Broadway, following the performance of Hair, Tony Award nominee Colman Domingo (The Scottsboro Boys), who got ordained for the occasion, married three same-sex couples in celebration of the passage of marriage equality in New York state.

Those married were actress and singer Terri White (Finian's Rainbow; Follies) and her partner, jewelry designer Donna Barnett; actor Ryan Dietz (The Actor's Fund's Chess) and his partner, playwright Josh Levine (who also works at the Theatre Communications Group); and Broadway stage doorman John Raymond Barker and his partner, Jujamcyn theatre usher Jared Pike.

  3. One of the grooms is a friend of mine, and I couldn't be happier for him. He's a wonderful, kind man who truly loves the theater, and I don't think anyone could have dreamt up a scenario more fitting or lovely for his wedding.
    And I just love hearing that audience cheer when they are all pronounced married :-)
