Read an interview with on-stage duo and real-life married couple, Marina Re and Paul D'Amato about the road to "Our Son's Wedding" by Donna de Matteo.
“Whether it’s hetero, homo, doesn’t make a difference,” de Matteo says of the play. “Love is love is love is love, if you care about someone.”
Our Son’s Wedding takes place in Boston, Massachusetts, a state that has taken several steps to finally allowing same-sex marriage.
