This verbatim play focuses on the previously unheard perspectives of individuals who were in New York on 9/11. Windows on the World was inspired by two of the author's friends: Alicia Titus, a flight attendant, who was murdered on the second plane that flew into the towers; and Judy Kaplan, who brought perspective, humor and wisdom to the day's events with her tales ofwalking home from downtown to Queens and how her life has changed since. Poets, lawyers, administrators, artists and fire fighters have shared their experiences and describe how their lives have changed as a result of this day of de-enlightenment. Also, for the first time you will get to hear the first call to 911 dispatch made by FDNY firefighter (Ret.) John Jermyn who shares his story of surviving the collapse of the towers.
