Cindy McCain to Appear in Phoenix Production of Dustin Lance Black's Play About the Prop. 8 Trial

Cindy McCAin is set to appear in a Phoenix production of 8, Dustin Lance Black's play dramatizing California's Proposition 8 trial produced by the Arizona Theatre Co. and former Tempe mayor Neil Giuliano, Phoenix Business Journal reports:

MccainNicole Stanton — the wife of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and an attorney at the commercial law firm Quarles & Brady LLP — is also scheduled to appear in the play on May 7, along with well-known attorney Grant Woods, media personality Pat McMahon and Phoenix City Councilman Tom Simplot. Simplot is also CEO of the Arizona Multihousing Association real estate group.

Neither McCain’s Senate office nor Hensley responded to requests for comment. The Republican senator has said in the past that he and his wife, as well as his outspoken daughter Meghan McCain, have differing views on gay marriage. Cindy and Meghan McCain appeared in “No on Prop. 8” advertisements in 2008.

McCain and Stanton are going to play Prop 8 plaintiffs Kris Perry and Sandra Stier.

  1. Good for her!

    Shame her husband's such a Republican ass (or is that redundant?).

  2. Somebody needs attention. She'd do better on "Dancing With The Stars"

  8. Maybe he will come out for marriage equality

  9. I can imagine her doing it without his OK because she's the one with tons of money and he's been sponging off her for years. She can do whatever she wants.

  11. Gay is new territory. We don't elect these people trying to make a name for themselves on us... Cooper, Savage, Maddow, Black, Lambert and name a few. Remember these could be tomorrow's has beens. Represent yourself. Being gay is owned by you -- no one else. Don't be a follower.

  12. Garth, next time you post something, could it make a remote bit of sense? Thanks.

  13. Garth is right...

  14. They all do it for the attention and the "self respect for the gay" really evident in most of the famous supporters...

  15. Another "equal rights fame whore"......

  16. Wow, bitter much guys? All I can hear is a big loud chorus of "It Should've Been Me". And it's not pretty.

  17. antb: Another bitter-phobic. Wake up. I never hear a "big loud chorus" over anything. That's your reality. "Equal rights fame whore" is right on the money Alan. I simply can't respect who I'm "supposed to".
