Friday, December 5 – Sunday, December 14: The Laramie Project at Plaza Black Box Theatre

Ten years ago in October, Matthew Shepard, a gay college student, was beaten and left for dead tied to a fence in Laramie, Wyoming. That tragedy made him into something of a symbol of the victims of anti-gay violence and the gross inequities that still exist in our country. His martyrdom was solidified by Moises Kaufman, who led the NYC-based Tectonic Theater Project as they created a stunning piece of theatrical journalism based on numerous interviews they conducted with citizens of Laramie. The show has been produced almost 5000 times. To mark the decade that’s passed and the aftermath that still lingers, Bad Habit Productions is staging The Laramie Project, which features music by local musicians.
