Considering Matthew Shepard
March 6, 2020 @ 7:30 pm | Cabrillo College Crocker Theater
Matthew Shepard was a young gay man, beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die in the Wyoming countryside, 22 years ago. His death catalyzed a generation of poets, musicians and playwrights to change our attitudes about being different, and to embrace “the other.” This beautiful masterpiece has been called the first important major musical work of the 21st century. It is based on Matthew’s life, the hate crime of his death, and the national outpouring of compassion which followed. It is an emotionally powerful and uplifting work and speaks with a fresh and bold voice. It ultimately calls each of us to live with kindness, compassion, and love. Experiencing this fully staged major choral work is a journey that transcends tragedy to lead us toward beauty and forgiveness. It will move and inspire you.
