News   Gay Marriage Is Set to Song in Solo Show The Girl That I Marry, June 14-28 As long-partnered gay couples head to Massachusetts to profess their legal love for one another, performer Elaine St. George takes hers to the New York stage as The Girl That I Marry prepares for a June engagement.

The one-woman show will perform at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Playwrights Horizons, for two performances a night (7 and 9:30 PM) on Mondays, June 14-28.

The Girl That I Marry is a "witty examination of the hot-button issue of gay marriage" that puts a "new spin on great American standards," according to show materials. The work, developed from a 1999 cabaret act with the same name, has a substantially revised script that adds personal anecdotes and social satire.

Songs featured in the show include classics by Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer, Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin and Stephen Sondheim, among others. St. George will be accompanied by the duo of Janice Friedman (piano) and Adam Armstrong (bass).

The show, timed to run during Gay Pride month and the traditional wedding season, is presented by executive producer Ethan Geto. Running time is approximately 75 minutes.

Tickets for The Girl That I Marry at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater, 416 West 42 St., will be available June 1 by calling (212) 279-4200. For more information, visit www.elainestgeorge.com.
