Currently, The Laramie Project is being performed at the Cutler Majestic Theater, which Emerson College owns. Saturday October 2 there is going to be a protest against this performance by The Westboro Baptist Church. Emerson students are staging a peaceful, counter protest. I won’t be in Boston this weekend, but if you want to counter protest, you can stop by the Cutler Majestic Theater on Tremont Street around 2PM.
During the Supreme Court week at Chautauqua, Adam Liptak mentioned that the upcoming court case against the first amendment rights and this type of protesting is going to be closely watched. I am anxious to see the outcome of the Supreme Court case since this is a highly sensitive issue. Here is another recent article from CNN about The Westboro Baptist Church in the news.
