It's been twenty years this week since a homophobic stain was placed on America when a 21 year old young gay man was robbed, brutally beaten, and left for dead tied to a fence for 18 hours outside of Laramie, Wyoming. It will be twenty years to the day on Oct 12th that he died shortly after midnight from that horrible tragedy. Matthew Shepard has become a face for hate crimes, tolerance, and the LGBT community in part to the incredible work the Matthew Shepard Foundation has done over the past two decades to erase hate.

I first heard about Kurt Weill's final musical masterpiece, LOST IN THE STARS, when I was studying his body of work during my senior year at CSUN. It was at a time, such as now, when society was being torn apart by opposing political forces, protests filled the streets, and racial inequality was being challenged in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination. And I have been waiting since then to see a production of the "musical tragedy" which opened on Broadway in 1949, just one year prior to Weill's death at age 50, at a time when segregation was still rampant in America. I am thrilled to report my wish came true last weekend at UCLA's Royce Hall when the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, in partnership with CAP UCLA, presented the first Los Angeles performance since the 1950s of LOST IN THE STARS.
