Tony Kushner and his partner, Mark Harris, are going to California for a now-legal wedding. “Mark and I are going to get married in California very soon,” the playwright said at the Shakespeare in the Park premiere of Hamlet. “Then we’re going to be recognized in New York as legally married.” The pair held a commitment ceremony in 2003, so this go-round will be a purely legal matter. “We’re going to go before the county clerk,” said Harris, a freelance writer. “But it means I get health insurance.” Kushner thinks same-sex marriage will soon be legal in other states. “Like in Massachusetts, Californians will realize that gay people getting married is not a problem for anyone, and then the rest of the country is going to fall in line.”
