24 Hours Plays
New Design High School sophomore Sydney White performed her original poem "I Pity the Silent," at 24 Plays on Broadway to a packed house on November 9th at American Airlines Theater. 24 Hours Plays is an annual event that calls for creative types to write, direct and perform six original short plays in just under a day. The event, sponsored by Montblanc, is a benefit for New Design High School's main cultural partner Urban Arts Partnership. Performing this evening along with Sydney were Anthony Mackie, Ashton Kutcher, Billy Crudup , David Cross, Demi Moore, Diane Neal, Eva Mendes, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Esposito, Julia Stiles, Liev Schreiber, Michael Ealy, Rachel Dratch, Rosario Dawson and Rosie Perez. Sydney rocked the house and one of the above celebs teared when she heard her the poem.
