mnn.org Clip of the Week: The Carmen Mathis Show Featuring Lia Chang & Lorey Hayes in Lorey Hayes’ Power Play
Clip of the Week: The Carmen Mathis Show
Jul 8, 2013 Clip of the Week, By Lee Walker Helland
It’s Clip of the Week time again, and since we’re all in entertainment mode (yay, summer!), we chose The Carmen Mathis Show, a biweekly series that presents performances by singers, dancers and actors, followed by interviews with the talent. Watch a reel of some recent episodes to get a sense for the vibrant personalities Mathis books for the show!
In this clip, actor-photographer-journalist Lia Chang and actor-playwright Lorey Hayes read from Hayes’ “Power Play,” an award-winning play about the women behind a man set to become the first African American governor of California—until a scandal hits the campaign and threatens to destroy them all. Watch the clip, which features a heated exchange between an Asian American and an African American woman about race relations, politics and love.
