Add to Calendar 08-09-2011 09-09-2011 15 110 STORIES Celebrity Benefit Performance 110 STORIES is a benefit stage performance to commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11, where film, TV and stage actors will share first person accounts of the tragedy. The event will be on September 8th & 9th at The Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, NYU in Manhattan. Participating talent: F. Murray Abraham, Lauren Ambrose, Andre Braugher, Billy Crudup, Edie Falco, Melissa Leo, Aasif Mandvi, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth, Vincent Piazza, Jeremy Piven, Andre Royo, Stelio Savante, Pablo Schreiber, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Tony Shaloub, Michael Stuhlbarg, Kathleen Turner, Ben Vereen and Merritt Wever and others TBA. Tony Award winner Gregory Mosher will direct. According to 110 STORIES' Playwright/ Creative Producer Sarah Tuft, "It's the human side of history, without politics & agenda, giving voice to those who experienced 9.11 directly." A love letter to New York City, the play was most recently performed by an esteemed cast at The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles in 2010 with proceeds going to LA Red Cross for Haiti relief. The Impact Net proceeds from this year's event will go to the New York Says Thank You Foundation. Started in 2003 at the suggestion of a 5-year-old boy, The New York Says Thank You Foundation has grown into one of the Nation's leading organizations to transform the 9/11 Anniversary into a positive, hands-on platform for national volunteer service. Each year on the 9/11 Anniversary, The New York Says Thank You Foundation sends hundreds of volunteers from New York along with disaster survivors from around the country to help rebuild communities around the United States recovering from disaster. It's the group's way of saying "Thank You" for all the love and support Americans from across the country extended to New Yorkers in the days, weeks, and months following September 11. Founder Jeff Parness has been nominated for 2011 CNN Hero of the Year.
