Marc Shaiman and Company Talk About Prop 8: The Musical


Marc Shaiman, Jack Black and John C. Reilly appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann to discuss the Prop 8: The Musical web sensation, how and why it was conceived, and how they all came to participate.

Shaiman also spoke with the NYT about the web video, his Prop 8 activism, and said he felt "burdened" by the resignation of the California Musical Theatre's musical director Scott Eckern, who he slammed in a public letter for his contributions to the passage of Proposition 8. Said Shaiman: "I did not ask for his resignation, nor would it be my place to ask for someone’s resignation. But I was a part of that, and that is a very heavy weight, and I don’t take it lightly."
