Ellen Page Plays Real-Life Lesbian

The who is/who isn’t rumor cloud has recently hovered over adorable, Oscar-nominated Juno star Ellen Page. (She even added to it on a Saturday Night Live sketch in which she stated her desire to “hug another woman with my legs in friendship.”) On the flip side of funny, Page just signed on to play Stacie Andree, the partner of lesbian police lieutenant Laurel Hester, who was involved in a years-long battle that changed the face of domestic-partner rights.

On December 10, a holiday party benefiting Project 515 took place at the home of Ken Darling in Golden Valley. A large number of attendees celebrated a successful year for the nonprofit organization working to overturn the 515 Minnesota statutes that discriminate against gay and lesbian citizens. A notable guest was Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who showed his support for the GLBT community and Project 515. Also on the special guest list were State Representatives Jim Davnie, Jeff Hayden, Frank Hornstein, Paul Thissen, and Ryan Winkler, plus State Senator Linda Higgins.

At 80, Edward Albee looms as America’s greatest living playwright. He has won the Tony for Best Play twice and the Pulitzer for drama thrice.

Albee is the last playwright to have been an actual bona fide household name. That was back when titans like Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, and Albee were part of the national discourse. They were read by small-town folks in New Mexico and Alabama who couldn’t get to New York to see their plays performed, but still thirsted to know what all the fuss was about.
