This just in: The gay mafia controls musical theatre!
Scott Eckern, former artistic director of California Musical Theatre, found out the hard way Tuesday after antigayblacklist.com published a list of all those contributing a thousand dollars or more to the Yes on Prop 8 campaign and his name came up. Well as it turns out, many in the musical theatre community in California may, in fact, be gay and enjoy having civil rights. He resigned Tuesday stating, "I am leaving California Musical Theatre after prayerful consideration to protect the organization and to help the healing in the local theatre-going and creative community."
Uh huh, I'm guessing after a boycott of the theatre was called by gay and lesbian artists, CMT was left with no cast, crew, sets, music, make up artists, or costumes. In an interesting side note, the California Musical Theatre is currently running the musical, Forever Plaid at the Cosmopolitan Cabaret which just might be one of the gayest things I have ever heard.
