ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

9/10: Love Before the Fall is a bittersweet, loving, ultimately cathartic evocation of a perfect moment in the lives of four New Yorkers the night before the attack on the World Trade Center.

Four old friends meet for dinner at a restaurant in New York City’s Little Italy the night before the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Live performance filmed before a ticketed dining audience.

The myths of Orpheus and Charon are interwoven with the entirely sung story of four friends dining in an Italian bistro who are fated to perish the next morning in the attack on the Twin Towers. At meal’s end, through magical realism, the restaurant’s mysterious strolling violinist is revealed to be Charon, hand extended, awaiting payment. Complying, each reconciles with death, and departs to the sounds of the next morning’s busy signals and the calls of first responders.
