Broadway’s twitterati over the sexual rainbow responded to news of this morning’s Supreme Court ruling with all the fervor of an 11 o’clock number that brings down the house and prompts a standing ovation. Here’s a sampling (refresh for updates):

George Takei (not on Twitter): “This is a happy day, not just for LGBT Americans, but for all Americans. It is the beginning of an era where we no longer will speak about same-sex marriage, but of marriage. And one day, we need not speak of LGBT rights, for they simply will be human rights. Across this great land, families are celebrating because we truly are one family.”
