Sarah Tuft’s renown and unforgettable play ‘110 Stories’ will be presented in commemoration of the 13th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, in Los Angeles Sept. 11th at The James R. Armstrong Theater, it was announced today by Arleigh E. “Gene” Dotson and Al Han, executive producers of JAG Productions.

A love letter to New York City and the courage of its citizens and first responders, 110 Stories shares the stories and perspectives of those who lived through the experience. 

The play, which is based on firsthand survivor accounts, will feature portrayals by Elya Baskin (Spiderman, Spiderman 3 and 2010: A Space Odyssey), Dean Cain (Superman, Lois and Clark), Lee Purcell (Mr. Majestyk, Big Valley), Tim Mesmer (Black Box TV, American Masters) and Doug Carfrae (Tomcats, Frasier) will be the Narrator. Directed by Michael Dotson, the performance will benefit non-profit organizations Operation Gratitude and Politiquest. 

Tickets can be purchased at www.Itsmyseat.com/110stories.  The performance starts at 7 pm and prices are $50 for general admission and $125 for VIP tickets; with a 20% discount on general admission tickets only for students with ID, senior citizens and First Responders.  The James R. Armstrong Theater is located at 3300 Civic Center Drive in Torrance.

In 110 Stories, a firefighter leads a journey through the morning and events of September 11th and into the recovery through a blend of the words and reflections of 30 characters, including an iron worker, a policeman, a homeless couple, a photojournalist, a K9 handler, a doctor, a body worker, a chaplain and a volunteer, among others.

“This storied play has been presented at numerous high-profile venues at New York University and The Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in 2011, The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles in 2010 and had a very successful performance last year at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles,” said Dotson.

All net proceeds from the performance will be donated to benefit Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to the military and is supported by First Lady Michelle Obama, and Hollywood celebrities including Ben Affleck, Gary Sinise, and Ed Asner, and Politiquest, a non-partisan organization dedicated to informing the public about the impact of government policies.

“This tremendous and compelling play reminds us that despite all of our differences, the human spirit will triumph over adversity and we should always honor the innocent victims and those who made the ultimate sacrifice to help others who are no longer with us,” said Dotson.

The performance also offers those who cannot attend the opportunity to purchase and donate tickets to be given to a Military Service Member, Veteran or Emergency First Responder.  For more information, visit Itsmyseat.com/110stories, or call 626-8MY-SEAT (626-869-7328).

110 Stories has a prestigious history featuring performances by Susan Sarandon, Samuel L Jackson, James Gandolfini, Edie Falco, Cynthia Nixon, Tony Shalhoub, John Hawkes, Ed Asner, Billy Crudup, Jeremy Piven, John Turturro, Katie Holmes, and Katharine McPhee. The play has been featured in an A&E documentary about 9/11 commemoration and has benefitted charities including The Red Cross, Dennis Leary Firefighters Foundation and the New York Says Thank You Foundation. 

“There is no other play or 911 remembrance with the power and significance of “110 Stories” and we are honored to support Operation Gratitude through our presentation of this important production.  We are dedicated to honoring and never forgetting the innocent victims, paying homage to the courageous first responders and remembering the selfless acts of heroism of so many New Yorkers,” said Han.
