What Mr. Kaufman and his team are after is less a portrait of any one person than one of the ethos of a place, ... In the deliberate, simple staging ... in which eight radiantly clean-scrubbed performers embody 60 different people against a bare-bones set, 'Laramie' often brings to mind 'Our Town,' the beloved Thornton Wilder study of life, love and death in parochial New Hampshire. -Ben Brantley
