While the web has been a home for indie films to stream online in their entirety, it’s also been a haven for live events to stream, be it a concert, or in this case, a reading of a rather beloved piece of stage writing.

Featuring a cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon and a boatload more, the full reading of Dustin Lance Black’s play, 8, has hit the web after streaming live on Sunday night, and it’s a stunner.

Directed by Rob Reiner, the play looks into a 2010 court case filed by AFER, or the American Federation For Equal Rights, and while I personally haven’t had the two hours to give to it, it does have a great cast, so I can’t wait to watch this sucker.  I’m a huge fan of Black, and this cast couldn’t be better, so overall, I’ll definitely be giving over some time to this.  What about you?
