An Afternoon with John Doyle, a conversation with the Tony Award-winning director that is moderated by Arlington actress and Pace faculty member Alexandra Silber, is held April 27 at Pace University's Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts.

Pace Performing Arts presents the event, which is free and open to the public and begins at 2 PM.

The event includes performances by Judy Kuhn and Malcolm Gets with Mary Mitchell Campbell on the piano. Additionally, Pace University BFA Musical Theater students will join Doyle onstage for selections from his new project, John Kander and Fred Ebb's The Visit. The concert is the culmination of a year-long artist-in-residency.

Doyle, whose inventive re-staging of Sweeney Todd earned him a Tony Award, has worked with faculty members at Pace Performing Arts' Musical Theater program, housed in Pace's Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, throughout this academic year. Doyle taught a variety of master classes and critiqued student projects, including vocal performance, song interpretation, the process of composition and the creative process.



Amy Rogers, director of the Musical Theater program at Pace Performing Arts, said in a statement, "John is one of the most inventive directors working in theater today. He represents the crossroads of classic tradition and cutting-edge revision, which is serendipitous because that is where Pace Performing Arts' Musical Theater program also lives."
