10/21/2017

An evocative Bach melody, a moving choral chant, the effervescence of the musical... It's all there in Considering Matthew Shepard, the stunning work by Craig Hella Johnson that has triumphed in the United States and which now has its European premiere. The terrifying story of Matthew Shepard, a young gay student at the University of Wyoming, kidnapped, beaten, tied to a fence and left for dead is transformed into a latter-day Passion Play to stir the emotions of the Palau audience.
