‘Laramie Tour’ makes Gotham stop

Pic funded with coin from 'Gross Indecency' legiter

Monday’s HBO premiere of “The Laramie Project” got off to a late start, perhaps due to the unusually large number of arrivals. Star-studded ensemble has 62 separate speaking parts and more than 20 attended the unspooling.

The fete was just one stop on the “Laramie Tour,” with screenings skedded this week in Washington, D.C.; Laramie, Wyo.; and Los Angeles.

Scribe and frosh helmer Moisés Kaufman pointed out the early development of the “Laramie” was funded with revenue from his previous play, “Gross Indecency.”

“I find it very moving that a play about Oscar Wilde allowed us to go to Laramie and start this movie about Matthew Shepard,” Kaufman said.

Partygoers at the American Museum of Natural History included co-exec producer Ross Katz, HBO topper Jeff Bewkes, HBO Films’ Colin Callender, execs Jeff Bewkes, Richard Plepler and Keri Putnam; co-stars Joshua Jackson, Steve Buscemi and Dylan Baker, Mark Webber; plus guests Alan Cumming, Macaulay Culkin and Tom Fontana.
