Prop 8, The Musical: Maybe They Could Have Thought Of This Two Months Ago?


Via HuffPo, it’s this star-studded musical “tribute” to Proposition 8, featuring the comedic and vocal talents of Margaret Cho, John C. Reilly, Maya Rudolph, Jack Black as Jesus, and a special appearance by Neil Patrick Harris. It’s cute, but what does it say that the only celebrity Funny or Die was able to score before the election was Molly Ringwold? [Edit: okay, commenter, and Margaret Cho too.] Now that it’s passed, everybody wants to come to the party. Feeling a little guilty for ignoring the queers, anyone? Urgh. Well, maybe one of the California Supreme Court justices will click on it.
