I have continued to work with Tim McCarthy, gay video historian, on his Voices of the Abasiyazzi project- helping with both his website and e-newsletters and fundraising efforts. After our recent meeting, we came across a poster around Jamaica Plain advertising the latest show at the American Repertory Theater- "Witness Uganda." We arranged then and there to see the show.
We saw the production last night. The show merges the political and the personal, the arts and activitism, seamlessly- in a way I have not come across often in musical theater.
We also had a chance to meet the star/writer of the show afterwards, Griffin Matthews, and discuss the Voices of the Abasiyazzi project with him.
