MISSION

 

AMERICAN SCOREBOARD is dedicated to the dissemination of information related to current political, social and justice issues facing every citizen of the United States. Through performances of transcripts, documents and other first-hand sources, our goal, both on and off stage, is to engage a diverse and inclusive audience with policies and co-related discussions impacting Federal, State and Local governments. By integrating the immediacy of live-performance with accurate, non-partisan engagement, we strive to empower both actors and audience to better understand and respond to both the systems of American politics and the issues that impact our lives.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 

Conceived and produced by Fran Kirmser and Christopher Burney, AMERICAN SCOREBOARD follows the current administration and presents one hour verbatim readings of Senate and Congressional transcripts without intentional slant or interpretation. The readings are FREE and open to the public on an ongoing basis. This series brings together actors from theatre, television and film to highlight America’s diversity and to encourage every citizen of every political persuasion to actively engage and listen to the language of our leaders.
