Gale Harold Will Do “Windows On The World” Reading September 12th
UPDATED SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2011~ Due to scheduling conflicts Gale will NO LONGER be able to read at the event. He can’t get away from filming! Great to see him so busy but sad that we won’t get to see the gifts from this. No worries Team Gale. Lots of goodies coming soon for The Secret Circle. 🙂 The Blank Theatre | magerit23
Kicking off the 20th season of its new play development program, the Living Room Series, Hollywood’s Blank Theatre will present an all-star reading of Windows On The World by Colette Keen on Monday, September 12 at 8pm at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood. “The events of 9/11 had a profound impact on all of us. Many people chose to express their grief through art. We were moved by the depth of this play, and could think of no better way to pay tribute to the memory of those we lost, as well as honor those who survived,” said Daniel Henning, The Blank’s Founding Artistic Director.
Added the author, “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.”
Joining Noah Wyle on stage at the Stella Adler Theatre will be Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Mark Valley (Human Target, Boston Legal), Nicholas Brendon (Private Practice, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Santaland Diaries at The Blank), Justina Machado(Six Feet Under, In the Heights), Perry Ojeda (Broadway and West End star), and Gale Harold (Queer as Folk, The Secret Circle), with more to be announced soon. This staged reading of Windows On The World will be directed by Kirsten Sanderson.
