Best High-School Theater Trend 

The Laramie Project

As topical as it's been to Kansans, the debate about evolution in the creaky Inherit the Wind looks like cotton candy compared with the murder of Matthew Shepard. Nevertheless, three area high schools had the chutzpah to stage Moises Kauffman's The Laramie Project. At Winnetonka, Barstow and Blue Valley North, students ranging from freshmen to seniors engaged in rehearsal discussions about gay-bashing and homophobia before playing fags and dykes and lovers and haters of both in their high-school auditoriums. The best news: nary a peep from wary parents.
