To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, tragedy, Sarah Tuft’s 110 Stories will be presented in Los Angeles September 10 at 7:30 PM and September 11 at 3 PM at The William Alderson Acting Studio.
Directed by acting teacher William Alderson, performers include Mark Pellegrino (Quantico, The Big Lebowski, The Number 23), Jamie-Lynn Sigler (Guys With Kids, Entourage, Sopranos), Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino (Falling Skies, Do You Believe, Mighty Aphrodite), Brian White (Chicago Fire, The Cabin In The Woods, Fighting), Nicki Micheaux (Animal Kingdom, Lincoln Heights, The Shield), Stelio Savante (Where The Road Runs Out, The Making Of The Mob: New York, Eisenstein In Guanajuato) and Golden Globe nominee Diane Venora (The Insider, Heat, Bird).
The event is produced by Alderson and Stelio Savante; additional celebrity performers will be announced.
110 Stories, according to press notes, “is a powerful way to memorialize a shared tragedy. It weaves first-person accounts—selected from hundreds collected right after September 11th—into a journey that recalls our wounds as well as works towards healing them. It’s the human side of history, without politics and agenda, giving voice to those who experienced 9/11 directly…a firefighter, homeless couple, police officer, iron-worker, massage therapist, chaplain, K9 handler, a mother, an elderly bulldog, a South American photojournalist. Together, these accounts shine a light into the human spirit—revealing hope, humor and compassion in the midst of tragedy.”
110 Stories has been performed at The Geffen Playhouse, The Public Theater, NYU Skirball, The Vineyard and various others for charities such as The Red Cross, Dennis Leary Firefighters Foundation and the New York Says Thank You Foundation.
