CONSIDERING MATTHEW SHEPARD is a new oratorio telling the story of the young man in Wyoming who was beaten and died for being gay. It is both heartbreaking and uplifting. The PBS special is a “docu/performance,” part documentary of the history and legacy of Matthew Shepard with many of the songs from the new musical work.
