The Laramie Project
by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project
7:30pm | Wed., Thurs., Fri. & Sat.
3pm | Sun.
Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater 

The Laramie Project chronicles how the town of Laramie, Wyoming, comes to grips with the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay student at the University of Wyoming.

In October 1998, Matthew Shepard was savagely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence outside of Laramie. The murder focused the nation’s attention on the lack of hate crime laws. A month after the murder, Moisés Kaufman and members of Tectonic Theater Project conducted hundreds of interviews with residents of Laramie. They combined these interviews, their own reactions, and media reports into a moving theatre piece in which the company portrays over sixty characters. (For mature audiences.) 

The film of this play opened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002 and was nominated for 4 Emmys.

Tartuffe
by Molière
7:30pm | Thurs., Fri. & Sat.
3pm | Sat. & Sun.
Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater

Tartuffe is a self-righteous, mischievous, religious conman, who wins the confidence of the wealthy but gullible Orgon. When, against the wishes of his wife, Orgon orders his daughter to marry Tartuffe, the comedy unfolds as the household is thrown into turmoil. In spite of all the evidence, Orgon continues to believe that Tartuffe is not a fraud, but a worldly saint, and it’s up to his wife to expose Tartuffe as a charlatan. Will Orgon realize the truth before it’s too late, or will Tartuffe ruin them all?

Tartuffe was a popular hit from its opening in 1664, even though it also ignited controversy due to the implied criticism of religion. Widely recognized as one of Molière’s masterpieces, Tartuffe remains as hilarious and relevant as it was 350 years ago!

Alma Thomas Theater

The spectacular American musical Gypsy, loosely based on the memoirs of the famous striptease artist of the 1930’s, Gypsy Rose Lee, opened on Broadway in 1959, starring the irrepressible Ethel Merman. It tells the story of Rose, the original ruthless stage mother, who pushes her children into careers on the vaudeville stage. When her dreams of stardom for her youngest daughter June are dashed, Rose redirects her ambitions on her less talented daughter Louise, who becomes the famous 1930’s striptease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee! 

The musical contains many popular songs, including “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Together (Wherever We Go),” “Small World,” “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” and “Rose’s Turn.”

Recognized by many critics as the greatest American musical of all time. The original production received 8 Tony Award nominations.

Bent 
By Martin Sherman
7:30pm | Thurs., Fri. & Sat.
11pm | Fri. (additional show added due to demand)
3pm | Sun.
Heather Hall

An intense and thought-provoking play, Bent tells of events that happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930’s, on and after the infamous Night of the Long Knives. Max and Rudy, two gay men in Berlin, are caught in a scandal that exposes their relationship. They desperately attempt to flee Berlin, but are caught and sent to a concentration camp. After Rudy’s death, Max lies to the guards and tells them he is Jewish, believing he will receive better treatment. In a time of terror, love and hope are found.

At the time of its premiere in 1979, little was known about Nazi persecution of homosexuals, but the play increased public awareness and knowledge of this history. (For mature audiences.)

Bent was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award in 1980.
