The Bridgeport Theatre Company’s skilled squadron of thespians spirits audiences away on emotionally resonant journeys of onstage magic. Based on a series of interviews, The Laramie Project deals with the community aftermath of the brutal, homophobia-motivated murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998. Actors portray the residents of Laramie, Wyoming, speaking in their own words as they grapple with the horrifying facts of the crime and how it affects their perception of the town and themselves. The show will take place at the Downtown Cabaret Theatre, whose table seating creates an intimate environment that breaks down the emotional barriers and challenging foot-wrestling mechanics of regular theater seating.
Though Bridgeport Theatre Company offers discounted tickets to students and seniors, today’s Groupon still represents the best deal for most customers.
