The Laramie Project
Written by Moisés Kaufman and Members of Tectonic Theater Project
Richard E. Hess, director

The facts surrounding the death of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student whose brutal murder shocked the country in 1998, come to life on stage. Award-winning playwright Moisés Kaufman and members of his theater company traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, to conduct 200 interviews with the residents of the town. What resulted is a powerful dramatization of the murder, investigation and subsequent convictions—a sobering look into how hate is born and nurtured in the back streets of a friendly American town. Mature subject matter.

The Revue Review: A Musical Redux Presentation
Roger Grodsky, musical director
During its golden years from World War I until the Great Depression, one of the most popular forms of entertainment was the “revue.” Combining music, dance and sketches with a sophisticated, satirical point of view, the revues delighted audiences with songs by the likes of Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin, Eubie Blacke, Noel Coward, the Gershwin brothers and Fats Waller. The Revue Review looks back at these long-forgotten shows, presented in the acclaimed minimalist style of CCM Redux.
