Neil Patrick Harris and Jack Black in Prop 8: The Musical

Shrimp_2

Hairspray composer Marc Shaiman (whose boycott lead to the resignation of Sacramento's California Musical Theatre creative director Scott Eckern following his donation to Prop 8) wrote and conceived this hysterical short piece (presented with a wink and a nod by the 'Sacramento Community College Players'), which was directed and staged by Hairspray director and choreographer Adam Shankman and features plenty of folks you will recognize.

Shaiman plays the piano. Jordan Ballard, Margaret Cho, Barrett Foa, J.B. Ghuman, John Hill, Andy Richter, Maya Rudolph, Rashad Naylor, Nicole Parker star as 'California Gays and The People That Love Them'. John C Reilly as a Prop 8 leader, and Alison Janney as his wife. Kathy Najimy as his second wife. Jenifer Lewis as a riffing Prop 8'er. Craig Robinson as a preacher. Rashida Jones, Lake Bell, Sarah Chalke as Scary Catholic School Girls from Hell. Katharine "Kooks" Leonard, Seth Morris, Denise "Esi!" Piane, Lucian Piane, Richard Read, Seth Redford, Quinton Strack, and Tate Taylor as The Frightened Villagers.

Jack Black stars as Jesus Christ, and Neil Patrick Harris is billed as 'A Very Smart Fellow'.

  1. to: "Another gay bigot and hypocrite, just like you.",

    aren't you that fat-faced fuck who is the editor-at-LARGE at the NRO, whose mother went sniffing out dried Clinton cum with Linda Tripp? aren't you the one who has the almost fetishistic xenophobia of france? aren't you the one who gets his little ego stroked by the likes of the pig-boy, Hannity?

    i am surprised to learn that you are gay, not surprised that you are a bigot and a hypocrite -- but gay?! whatever, you are not not welcome in our camp. go back to your wife.

  2. YOU PEOPLE ARE BEYOND SAVING.
    PLEASE KEEP YOUR SICKNESS TO YOURSELVES AND LEAVE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY ALONE.
    WE WILL NOT BE HELD DOWN. YOU ARE NOT THE MAJORITY- US NORMAL PEOPLE ARE.
    YOU WILL NEVER BE HAPPY AS LONG AS YOU KEEP BEING HOMOS.
    PLEASE GET HELP.

  3. Kimberly:
    There is nothing "Normal" about hatred and bigotry. It's common, but inhumane. You're a great role model for children; if we want them to grow up to be considered ignorant, intolerant, hateful. If anyone needs saving, it's you. Maybe there's hope for you to one day wake up from this mentality you have that only people who are exactly like you should have the right to exist. You seem to be proud of your ignorance, which screams of immaturity and lack of education. If the lifestyles of others bother you so much, perhaps you should seek counseling. Then you can get to the deep rooted issues of why the rights and happiness of other people tie your panties in a bunch.

    All I can tell you is this: Do the American thing, and let freedom ring.

  4. Kimberly,

    Homosexuality isn't not normal. It is a variant in human nature. The only definitive answer re: bigotry and hatred towards homosexuals is the heightened sense of superiority and accountability by the religious right. It is well understood that before the development of Judaism/Islam/Christianity, homosexuality was accepted as a variant in human behavior. It wasn't until the Hebrews enforced regulations and laws regarding what is 'unclean' that same-sex interactions were labeled 'abomination'.

    From that, the current outcry of the minority of homosexual persons in this country is to be recognized and legitimized at a legal level. We desire to be treated with equal rights under the law and to not be treated as second-class citizens. This has little impact on your ability (albeit a very poorly defined ability) to deliver your message against homosexuality. Instead, it is to recognize that it is the responsibility of our elected officials to keep religion out of the affairs of state and vice-versa.

    If you do not alter your opinion towards tolerance, you will find that you are becoming the minority, since we are only a few years away from the majority of Americans supporting and electing officials who would pursue equal representation under the law.

    Until that time, continue to spew your hatred, only to find that you may be shunning a young child, a trusted friend, a sibling, a coworker, and, inevitably, yourself.
