Scott Eckern, the Sacramento theater director, donated in support of California’s Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage, now he must pay.
Eckern stepped down from his position at the theater on Wednesday, his artistic home since 1984.
The LA Times reported:
Scott Eckern, the Sacramento theater director whose political donation in support of California’s Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage has become a lightning rod in the debate over gay rights, resigned today. He said he wanted to protect the California Musical Theatre, his artistic home since 1984, from further controversy.
Word of Eckern’s $1,000 donation — publicly reported under state elections law — spread rapidly on the Internet late last week, and Eckern drew criticism from some prominent stage artists, including Tony Award-winning composer Marc Shaiman (“Hairspray”) and Jeff Whitty, the “Avenue Q” librettist, who wrote on his whitless.com website about his thoughts on how to deal with the fact that “Avenue Q” would be opening at California Musical Theatre in March.
