Gaurav Gopalan Murder: LGBT Community, Friends Remember Slain Theater Director At Dupont Vigil – Michael Grass

Washington — Gaurav Gopalan once told colleagues he had hoped to host a performance of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” at Dupont Circle’s fountain. Sunday night, friends and loved ones gathered there with candles to remember the slain 35-year-old local theater director by reading passages from that play, “The Tempest” and other works of the great playwright as a memorial to Gopalan, before marching to the street in Columbia Heights where he was found dead on Sept. 10.
