A set of micro plays about gay marriage that made its debut earlier this month off-Broadway has been jilted.

Producers said Tuesday that "Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays" at the Minetta Lane Theatre will have its final performance on Dec. 18.

The plays by playwrights including Neil LaBute, Paul Rudnick, Doug Wright and Moises Kaufman opened Nov. 13 with an open-ended run and high hopes.

The cast includes Beth Leavel from "The Drowsy Chaperone", Richard Thomas from "Race", Craig Bierko from "The Music Man", Mark Consuelos from TV's "All My Children", Polly Draper from "thirtysomething" and Harriet Harris from "Thoroughly Modern Millie."

The other playwrights are Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Wendy MacLeod and Jose Rivera.
