Performing Tribute 9/11: Ordinary People, Remarkable Stories is an extraordinary theatre production that weaves together the perspectives of ten individuals who were separately yet directly impacted by the events of 9/11— family members who lost loved ones; survivors of the North and South Towers; an evacuated area resident; a volunteer rescue worker who survived the collapse of the towers; a retired FDNY firefighter who responded to the site, an NYC Department of Sanitation employee who volunteered in the rescue and a New Jersey resident who worked with the Salvation Army during the recovery. The individual experiences are told first-hand and woven together in a theatrical presentation sharing their unique and inspiring responses.
A profound performance that shows the heroism of people who have chosen to respond to devastation and hatred with quiet determination and a belief that they can and will make the world a better place.” — Michael Arad, Designer of the World Trade Center Memorial
