On March 16th-18th, another group put its production of The Laramie Project on its feet smack dab in the middle of Flushing, New York. This particular production, hosted at Flushing High School, was able to discuss Laramie’s message of hope, love and compassion with its audience through various talkback sessions. Even Moisés Kaufman, the lead writer of The Laramie Project, was eager to partake in this dialogue, as he was able to visit with their cast during the rehearsal process. To the cast of Flushing High School’s production of Laramie, as well as the wonderful Lindsay Shields, head of the Flushing High School Theatre Department: Thank you for your constant enthusiasm towards our project as you carried the torch. And to whom Flushing High School’s production was dedicated: Angel Luis Candelario-Padro, this one’s for you.
