At the Aug. 1 preview of the September 11th memorial performance series, Brave New World, Rosie Perez read from Frank Pugliese's contribution, Late Night, Early Morning, based in part on the playwright's experiences as a janitor at the World Trade Center. Kristin Davis performed Jose Rivera's Impact, based on the thoughts of two lovers about to leap together from the burning towers.

A handful of the more than 150 theatre artists who will come together for Brave New World—a three-day benefit performance at Town Hall designed to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Sept. 11—gathered at a Chelsea studio space Aug. 1 to offer a selection of the volumes of material which will be presented next month. Cynthia Nixon, Rosie Perez, Kristin Davis and Orfeh performed at the preview event.
