News Literacy Project

On Tuesday, Checkology® students at two NYC schools saw The Lifespan of A Fact — followed by a talkback, moderated by NLP founder and CEO Alan Miller (left), with director Leigh Silverman and actors Bobby Cannavale, Daniel Radcliffe and Cherry Jones. The topic: “true” versus “true-ish.”

The 30-minute Q&A covered a number of topics, such as the importance of the arts and the ability to enjoy a movie “based on a true story” without looking up every fact upon leaving the theater. The actors also had a strong message for the students, describing how their roles in the play had strengthened their respect for journalism and for real-life fact-checkers. In fact, in preparation for this part, Radcliffe shadowed a fact-checker at The New Yorker.  

“It gave me incredible faith,” Radcliffe said, noting that he was “inspired” by the “people out there who are doing this job and doing it amazingly rigorously.”  

Photos from that Q and A were posted on Facebook you can view them below

Theater Gone Wrong

Daniel Radcliffe made his Broadway musical debut as J. Pierrepont Finch in the 2011 revival of the Frank Loesser musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. In the show, Radcliffe’s character is a window washer who climbs the corporate ladder with the aid of a self-help book and not much else. In this edition of our Theater Gone Wrong series, Radcliffe remembers the antics of one overzealous How to Succeed… ensemble member who managed to fail at his musical theater entrance by trying a little too hard.

The Lifespan of a Fact’ extends invite to President Trump — as a teaching moment

The producers of Daniel Radcliffe’s Broadway show about truth in journalism are extending a formal invite to President Trump and the First Lady — as a teaching moment.

“While we respect how you like to challenge facts, to create ‘alternative facts,’ we invite you to spend ninety minutes with us and face this hot button issue head on, in the dark, in a theater, of all places,” reads the invite from producers Jeffrey Richards, Deanna Twain and Will Trice.

The producers also suggested that Trump might learn how to better spot “fake news” about himself after seeing the show. They appealed to Trump’s history as a Broadway player to make their invite more alluring. In 1970, Trump, then 23, invested in the comedy “Paris is Out!” which fizzled out after fewer than 100 performances.

Their Letter can be read down below
