"Power 2010: A UA Living Newspaper Project"

by Dan Thompson

Directed by Rachel Lacy


Presented by UA’s Studio Series


During the mid-30’s, the Federal Theatre Project produced a series of Living Newspaper performances that gave spectators a way to understand the complicated political debates and economic circumstances making the daily headlines.  Power 2010 (a.k.a. Power 2K10) will help TODAY’s consumers understand the basic concepts of green energy and the politics surrounding sustainability.  The performance, comprised of a series of scenes, draws from the Living Newspaper’s tradition of cultural criticism through comedy and satire, while incorporating contemporary models of news entertainment such as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
