A thank you to Tucson

From the comments on yesterday’s post about the staged reading The Laramie Project; 10 Years Later, a thank you to those who attended:

On behalf of the rest of the cast and crew of Laramie Project 10 Years Later, thanks to all who came to see the performance last night. As an actor, I have to say, this was by far the most powerful theatrical experience I have had in a long time, particularly because of the warm reception we received from the audience.


One thought on “A thank you to Tucson

  1. I just viewed the original DVD of “The Laramie Project”, having been at that play/reading last night at Centennial Hall of the interviews 10 years after Matthew Shepard’s murder.  This was a supreme tragedy for that small town of Laramie, Wyoming and time will tell whether GLBT people will ever attain equality in Wyoming and the rest of America.  I remember attending the candle light ceremony at the University of Arizona mall when Matthew died 11 years ago on October 12, 1998.  Let us hope that there is more tolerance and acceptance since then, so that something positive came out of 21 year old Matthew’s premature and violent death.
