Tyler Clementi: The boy in the band

by Jeremy Hooper

This photo of Tyler Clementi, from February of this year, has a very haunting quality to it. He's the one playing the violin:

There's a vibrant set and four downstage actors clearly playing up the madcap comedy. But whether its hindsight or the framing or some greater aura or whatever -- Tyler's solemn violin-playing is what pulls our focus.

Oh, and the almost too unbelievable title of the show? I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. The message far too many gay kids hear in this far too heterosexist world.
