Tony Award winner Mary-Louise Parker, Olympian Adam Rippon and others were in attendance at Laramie: A Legacy, a benefit reading of the Laramie Project in honor of Matthew Shepard. The event, held at John Jay College September 24, was directed by Tectonic Theater Project founder and artistic director Moisés Kaufman.
Laramie: A Legacy brought together guest artists and members of the original Tectonic Theater Project, who traveled from New York to Laramie, Wyoming, to conduct interviews with the people of the town after Matthew Shepard was killed in a brutal anti-gay hate crime. These interviews formed the basis of The Laramie Project, which has become one of the most performed contemporary plays in the world after premiering in 2000.
