Tucson Humanities Festival – 'Luci, Telecamera, Azione: An Acting Life From Broadway to Milan'

When: November 05, 2021 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Tucson Humanities Festival: Jessica Polsky

Beginning her acting career in New York and on tour throughout the world as a Broadway and musical theatre performer, Jessica Polsky (’98, Italian and Dance) found her niche when her Italian major came into play. Her Italian proficiency ultimately combined with her performing career when Polsky was invited to move permanently to Italy to star on a hit Italian primetime sitcom, "Camera Café." Success and awards followed and established Polsky as a popular actress and TV personality within the Italian showbusiness industry. In a lively insider’s interview, the College of Humanities 2021 Alumna of the Year, Polsky will relate stories from her bi-national, bi-lingual and bi-cultural career on stage and screen. Magnifica!

Presented as part of University of Arizona Homecoming 2021.
