American Scoreboard (NYC)
On Monday, October 23, the American Scoreboard series will take Betsy DeVos back to school in a live reading of the US Senate confirmation hearing featuring Pace students and alumni alongside Broadway performers, and more!
American Scoreboard: The Trump Administration will present the fourth installment of its series of live dramatic readings on Monday, October 23, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:20 p.m. at Pace’s Schimmel Center.
Ripped directly from the US Senate Chamber in Washington DC, the American Scoreboard series explores, from an all-new perspective, the serious issues facing President Donald Trump and the America public today. Conceived and produced by Tony Award-winning producer Fran Kirmser and Christopher Burney, American Scoreboard presents one-hour verbatim readings of Congressional hearing transcripts in a format that can’t be found on C-SPAN or CNN.
Coinciding with the fall 2017 semester and in cooperation with Pace University’s Office of Government and Community Relations, American Scoreboard's fourth installment features the confirmation hearing of US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. US Senators represented in the hearing will be portrayed by current students and recent graduates including professionals from Broadway productions, colleges and universities, including Pace, and the New York City public school system. All actors appear courtesy of Actors Equity Association.
Pace Performing Arts student Bartek Szymanski '18 will play Senator Bob Casey, Pennsylvania (D); Pace Performing Arts alumna Amber Jaunai '17 will play Senator Johnny Isakson, Georgia (R); and Pace Performing Arts alumnus Cole Taylor '17 will be the clerk/narrator.
Broadway performers include:
Lilla Crawford (Senator Patricia Murray), who made her Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning musical Billy Elliot and then booked the title role in the Broadway revival of Annie against 5,000 actresses who auditioned in a nationwide search. Crawford also starred opposite Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep as Little Red Riding Hood in Disney's Into the Woods, and is currently starring in the new Nextflix sketch comedy series, The Who Was Show.
Sydney Lucas (Senator Elizabeth Warren), who earned a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance as Small Alison in Broadway’s Fun Home.
