Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site Reopens Tonight as Performances of The Laramie Project Resume


From Ford’s Theatre: “We want to thank everyone for their patience this last week as we coped with the ramifications of the government shutdown. We are pleased to announce that Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site will reopen as of Wednesday, October 16th.

Ford’s Theatre Society (a non-profit 501(c)(3)) has agreed to provide emergency funding to the National Park Service to reopen the site. Funding is possible thanks to a generous gift from a key Society Trustee, Ronald O. Perelman.”

Also not to be missed is the exhibition “Not Alone: The Power of Response,” through November 3rd, across the street from Ford’s Theatre. It features letters written to Matthew Shepard’s parents in the aftermath of his murder, as well as a wall-length photograph of the probable scene of his death. Perusing those moving letters, and taking in the painful panorama, is the perfect prelude to seeing the play. –John Stoltenberg
