9/11-Themed Play, That Day in September, Makes N.Y. Premiere April 9

News   9/11-Themed Play, That Day in September, Makes N.Y. Premiere April 9 On September 11 Artie Van Why, a former actor who had joined the corporate world, watched the horrific events of the day unfold before his eyes at his office opposite the World Trade Center.

Van Why left his job in the Manhattan law firm to reevaluate his life, and he chronicled his personal experiences in a new play, That Day in September. Featuring direction by Richard Masur, That Day in September received its world-premiere production at Hollywood's Celebration Theatre in Sept. 2002. Now, the play will make its East Coast debut at the Pantheon Theater for a 12-performance run. The Los Angeles Times had this to say about the one-man show when it played the Celebration Theatre: “Van Why’s recollections of the attacks and their aftermath are harrowing, marked by an eyewitness perspective that has the sober authenticity of diary entries.

Tickets are priced at $15 for the production, which will play April 9-18 at the Pantheon Theater, which is located in Manhattan at 303 W. 42nd Street. To purchase tickets, log on to www.theatermania.com or call (212) 352-3101.
