The Alhambra expects a sell-out crowd on Monday, September 9, 2013 at the remembrance of the horrific 9/11 events that took place two days after the above mentioned date back in 2001. The one-man documentary “We Will (Never) Forget” will be performed at the Alhambra Theater & Dining for one show only!
About the Show: “Best of the Fest” winner of the 2012 Orlando Fringe Festival, 9/11: “We Will (Never) Forget” is a one man show written, produced and performed by Alhambra Stage Manager Jason Nettle...promises a moving, educational, inspirational (not sad) eye-opening look at the events of September 11. Nettle plays 17 New Yorkers who were affected by the day's events in drastically different ways and how they're dealing with them. This critically acclaimed show is a must-see for anyone who wants to commemorate this fateful day - and for those who were too young to understand it when it happened.
Nettle was living in New York on that horrible day and has used his personal experience along with his friends', neighbors', and the thousands of details he researched from personal accounts in the years following to write this show that will connect with you in some way. The show is educational, inspirational, and eye opening to the thoughts and behaviors of those affected in the city that was attacked.
Did you swear you wouldn't forget? Have you kept that promise? The title organically changed to placing a line through "Never" because after the first reading, numerous people approached Jason and reluctantly confessed that they had forgotten. They didn't see how this was possible, but in our society of moving forward at a rapid speed, he was able to understand and use these apologies to help move this show forward.
What is it that we have forgotten? That is going to be something different for everyone. “Almost everyone I spoke with or read about swore they wouldn’t forget. I set out to help people – all of us – keep that promise. If this show only does that then we have accomplished our goal, but I think it will do more than that. I think, through the eyes of the 17 characters I portray, the audience gets reminded of the entire perspective of what happened”, states Nettle.
Tickets: $25.00 per person (plus tax). Ticket price includes the show and parking. There is no dinner service, but the Alhambra will feature cocktail service and the bar will be open. Call the box office at 904.641.1212 or visit on line. NB This show contains strong language and graphic details.
