The Guys is a dialogue between a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the September 11th attack, and an editor who helps him write the eulogies as she struggles herself to come to terms with the event. These benefit performances will feature Sigourney Weaver and Tom Wopat.
The piece will be performed Tuesday, September 6 at the Goldman Sachs headquarters (200 West Street in lower Manhattan) for invited guests, with a special talkback moderated by veteran television journalist Harry Smith and featuring Anne Nelson and others.
On Wednesday, September 7 the production shifts to The Museum of Jewish Heritage (36 Battery Place) for a 3pm performance for FDNY families and the public.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage will also host a special benefit performance on Thursday, September 8 for The FDNY Foundation, the official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of the New York City Fire Department. The funds raised will assist the FDNY in its mission to prevent and respond to fires, medical emergencies, disasters and terrorist acts, protecting the lives and property of residents and visitors in New York City. The FDNY Foundation funds programs to help meet the Department's training, equipment, and education needs.
