Featured Review: The State of Marriage
John Lamb

The State of Marriage The true story of Ed Reggi and Scott Emanuel's bus journey to Iowa to be legally wed frames a series of sketches that address the ins and outs of gay marriage. Some sketches are slight to the point of inconsequence — "Leviticus Limbo" is funny, but doesn't go anywhere worth the trip — while others, such as Troy Turnipseed's portrayal of the widower of a St. Louis police officer, speak eloquently and poignantly to what homosexuals suffer when they don't have legal standing as a spouse. Dieta Pepsi (Leon Braxton) makes for an eminently charming guide through the evening, and Carl Overly steals the show with his note-perfect Beyoncé. Presented by St. Louis Actors' Studio and That Uppity Theatre Company through June 20 at the Regional Arts Commission, 6128 Delmar Boulevard. Tickets are $25 ($18 for students and seniors). Call 314-458-2978 or visit www.stlas.org.
