Proposition 8 – The Musical

guest post by Aaron Muszalski

Composer/lyricist Marc Shaiman (Hairspray, SNL) and director/choreographer Adam Shankman (Hairspray, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) have created a perfect three-minute gem of witty, playful musical agitprop in support of same-sex marriage rights. It’s full of familiar faces, including John C. Reilly and Allison Janney (as Prop 8 supporters), Andy Richter and Neil Patrick Harris (as gay marriage proponents) and a surprise appearance by Jack Black.

Short, satirical and sweet, I wouldn’t be surprised if this humble effort actually changes some people’s minds. Well done.
