Bikeman: A 9/11 Play Sets Closing Date at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center
By Carey Purcell
Bikeman: A 9/11 Play, Thomas F. Flynn's new play based on his book "Bikeman," will conclude its run at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center March 30.
Bikeman officially opened Feb. 18 following previews that began Jan. 26. Upon closing, Bikeman will have played total of 61 performances, including 25 previews.
The cast includes Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark), Irungu Mutu, Angela Pierce, Elizabeth Ramos and Richard Topol.
Here's how the show is described: "Bikeman is a recounting of one man's experience of that unforgettable day and chronicles the morning of September 11, 2001 through the eyes of a veteran journalist reporting live from the shadows of the Twin Towers. Tom, an award-winning writer and producer for The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, was outside his Greenwich Village home when the first plane flew directly over his head. Tom immediately called into the news desk to tell them he was headed downtown. He jumped on his bicycle and began his ride to the towers. His harrowing story recounts his transition from reporter to participant as he battles for survival at the fall of the south tower, ultimately coming to terms with the events of the day."
"Every human being in the world alive on that day experienced September 11. It was the most watched event in the history of the earth. For them, it will always be a searing memory. I believe this is everyone’s story," Flynn said in a previous statement.
Bikeman features set design by James Noone, costume design by Karen Ledger, lighting design by Kevin Adams, sound design by Sam Kusnetz, projection design by Darrel Maloney and original music by Jonathan Brielle.
The producers of Bikeman support the National September 11 Memorial & Museum by donating a portion of ticket sales.
The BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center is located at 199 Chambers Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 220-1460 or visit Bikeman911.com.
