U.S. Representatives Adam 
Schiff and Gus Bilirakis (FL-
12)introduced legislation
Last week to officially 
recognize the Armenian 
Genocide of 1915. The 
Resolution recognizes 
the genocide against the 
Armenian people by the 
Ottoman Empire, rejects 
efforts to enlist the U.S. 
Government in denial of 
genocide, and encourages 
education about the 
Armenian Genocide, as 
well as the unprecedented 
relief efforts undertaken 
by the United States in the 
aftermath of the Armenian 

 “Over 100 years ago, the 
Ottoman Empire undertook 
a brutal campaign of murder, 
rape, and displacement 
against the Armenian people 
that took the lives of 1.5 
million men, women, and 
children in the first genocide 
of the 20th century,” said 
Rep. Schiff. “Genocide is 
not a relic of the past, but an 
ever present threat. Its denial 
is not only a continuing 
injury to the survivors, but 
makes its repetition against 
another people more likely. 
It is therefore all the more 
pressing that the Congress 
recognize the historical fact 
of the Armenian Genocide 
and make clear that we will 
never be an accomplice to 

 Representatives Adam 
Schiff and Gus Bilirakis 
were also joined by the other 
leaders of the Congressional 
Caucus on Armenian Issues, 
Representatives Frank 
Pallone, Peter King and Jackie 
Speier in underscoring their 
support for the recognition 
of the Armenian genocide. 
A bipartisan group of more 
than 70 Members joined as 
original cosponsors of the

 Originally presented on 
Broadway with Director Bob 
Fosse, Pippin offers a wistful 
and timeless story of coming 
to terms with the significance 
of a single life in the midst of 
life’s trials and tribulations. 
Pippin’s journey and search 
for meaning highlight such 
beloved songs as Corner of 
the Sky and Morning Glow. 
The plot of Pippin turns on 
the mysterious “show within 
a show” that leaves audiences 
on the edge of their seat until 
the compelling finale. As 
Pippin’s search for purpose 
and direction develop he 
declares, “If I’m never tied to 
anything, I’ll never be free.”

 The show is highly 
interactive, and as part of 
the fun, the audience will 
move from space to space, 
exploring the theatre, the 
courtyard and a beautiful 
jewel of a chapel for an 
authentic experience of site-
specific theatre.

 Drawing from the talent of 
Los Angeles, Pippin features 
an acclaimed cast, including 
Jana Souza as the Leading 
Player, KJ Rasheed as 
Charlemagne, Paul Siemens 
as Pippin, Marisa Echeverria 
as Catherine, Cynthia 
Crass as Berthe, Elizabeth 
Gracen as Fastrada and Will 
Bellaimey as Lewis.

 The nonprofit Lineage 
Dance, and the Lineage 
Performing Arts Center 
are dedicated to making 
the arts accessible to all 
–both as performers and
audience members. As part 
of the Pippin performances, 
Lineage is honored to
