Craig Hella Johnson: Considering Matthew Shepard

September 19, 2022

Trinity proudly presents New York’s first fully staged performances of Craig Hella Johnson’s epic fusion oratorio, Considering Matthew Shepard. Johnson created the oratorio as “a space for reflection, consideration, and unity around [Shepard’s] life and legacy.” LGBTQ+ community and educational events will be scheduled in collaboration with Trinity’s Pride 365 program, which focuses on LGBTQ+ advocacy throughout the year.
