Congrats Kunal and Jason! A Surprise Same-Sex Marriage Proposal Onstage at Broadway’s Cinderella

There was extra romance in air at the Sept. 4 performance of Cinderella where, after the curtain call, a same-sex couple visiting from San Diego became engaged onstage at the Broadway Theatre.
Following bows, leading man Santino Fontana grabbed the microphone and, to facilitate the surprise element, announced that a “special promotion” was being held. He called out two not-so-random seat numbers and asked whoever happened to be sitting there to come to the stage. In these seats were Kunal Ghose and Jason Aronne.
It was then that the couple took center stage and Ghose, an engineer originally from India, proposed on bended knee to his partner of two years, who hails from from Connecticut. A clearly surprised and choked-up Aronne said yes in front of a jubilant cast and audience.
Ghose earlier said, “Growing up in India you don’t hear many Western stories but you do read ‘Cinderella’ and it left a lasting impression of finding ‘happily ever after’ on me. This would be a best place to start our happily ever after like Cinderella and her Prince.”
