A Sequel for Human Rights.

Leslie Gray Streeter tells us about The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later, and the significance of Florida Stage's participation.
A decade after Shepard’s death, members of the (New York's Tectonic Theatre) returned to Laramie to gauge the impact of what happened there, and turned their findings into a new play that, on Monday, will be read simultaneously at theaters around the country...
“It’s very easy to feel disconnected from other theaters in the world, and lose sight of the impact that theater can have. This is one of those moments where you get to feel connected to people all over the world who want to have some positive impact on these issues,” says Florida Stage spokesman Michael Gepner. “This is global. We’re thrilled to have been asked to participate in it.”
It's one of two kick-off events for the South Florida Theatre Festival, which runs through October 26th. See the Florida Stage website for tickets and other details.
