The Blank will present Colette Keen's drama Sept. 12 at 8 PM at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, CA. Kirsten Sanderson will direct. Windows On The World is being presented as part of the Blank's new play development program, the Living Room Series.

In addition to Madsen ("Sideways") and Wyle ("E.R."), the cast will include Mark Valley ("Human Target," "Boston Legal"), Nicholas Brendon ("Private Practice," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Justina Machado ("Six Feet Under," In the Heights), Perry Ojeda (On the Town, Imaginary Friends) and Gale Harold ("Queer as Folk," Orpheus Descending).

Additional casting will be announced shortly.

According to playwright Keen, "This verbatim play focuses on the previously unheard perspectives of individuals who were in New York on 9/11. Windows On The World was inspired by two of my friends: Alicia Titus, a flight attendant, who died on the second plane that flew into the towers, and Judy Kaplan, who brought perspective, humor and wisdom to the day's events with her tales of walking home from downtown to Queens and how her life has changed since. Poets, lawyers, administrators, artists, and fire fighters have shared their experiences and describe how their lives have changed as a result of this day of de-enlightenment. Also, for the first time, you will get to hear the first call to 911 dispatch made by FDNY firefighter (Ret.) John Jermyn, who shares his story of surviving the collapse of the towers."

For tickets, priced $50-$75, phone (323) 661-9827 or visit TheBlank. The Stella Adler Theatre is located at 6773 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood.
