As we approach the 10th anniversary of September 11th, New York City will play host to a charity performance of Sarah Tuft’s play “110 Stories,” which includes more than thirty stories based on the personal accounts of people dealing with the aftermath of 9/11. The stories take a non-politicized approach to the tragedy of 9/11, and the star-studded cast, set to include (schedules permitting) Susan Sarandon, James Gandolfini, Edie Falco, Matt Dillon and more, have inspired others by their dedication to charitable causes. The date, venue and ticket information for this benefit performance, produced by Samira Qureshi, Cori Silberman, Sarah Tuft and Stelio Savante, have yet to be announced, so keep an eye open for updates. You don’t want to miss the chance to see this phenomenal cast as they pay tribute to those who perished in the attacks and celebrate the strength of the American spirit.
