Stephen Fry will play host to a musical
wedding to celebrate the start of Britain's gay marriage law.
Gay and lesbian couples will begin
exchanging vows on Saturday, March 29.
Fry will narrate a 60-minute special
for Channel 4 titled Our Gay Wedding: The Musical, in which
composer Benjamin Till and West End actor Nathan Taylor will tie the
Fry's commentary will be accompanied by
songs penned by the grooms.
“We've been together for nearly 12
years and never thought we'd get the chance to get married, for
real,” the couple told The
Independent. “Doing what we both do for a living has meant
that we've spent our entire lives expressing emotion through song, so
getting married in a musical, particularly one that we're writing
ourselves, felt like the most natural thing in the world.”
