‘8’ play turns court transcripts into theater

Some of Hollywood’s biggest names — Brad Pitt, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon, Martin Sheen, George Clooney included — performed a play on Saturday based on transcripts from the court case against Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage.

The entire play, directed by Rob Reiner, was streamed live. Several gay actors played the part of proponents of the ban.

Video of the original trial has never been released.
