    Thank you!

    On behalf of the Leavey Family and the Board of Directors of the Lt. Joseph G. Leavey Foundation, we wish to thank all of our friends and neighbors who supported the production of “The Guys” on November 19. Almost 200 people came together around this magical evening that will support the schools and children of the Pelham community. We are grateful for those of you who contributed but could not attend. Your support was felt and appreciated.

    We’d like to acknowledge the Pelham Picture House and their wonderful staff for enthusiastically supporting the production. And a very special thank you to our friend and playwright, Anne Nelson, for telling such a courageous story and the talented actors, Renee Bergeron and William Mulligan, that brought it to life.

    Finally grateful to everyone who has been on this journey with us of honoring Joe’s memory.


    "The Guys" Live Performance at The Picture House

    Join us for a Benefit for the
    Lt Joseph G. Leavey Foundation

    Thursday November 19th at 7:30pm


    Directed by Hannah Ryan
    Starring William Mulligan and Renee Claire Bergeron 

    Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He’s looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story. 

    Please watch Bear Back Brooke Productions video about the play.

    Special Performances of Anne Nelson’s THE GUYS

    To commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, The Flea Theater will present special performances of Anne Nelson’s THE GUYS at various venues in Lower Manhattan including the Museum of Jewish Heritage (for the FDNY) and Goldman Sachs.

    Director Jim Simpson and acclaimed actors Sigourney Weaver and Tom Wopat reprise their work in this moving post-9/11 piece for FDNY families, the downtown community and other guests.

    “The Flea could not be more honored to once again present a work that so helped and healed when it was first presented a decade ago,” notes Ostrow. “We thank the FDNY and Goldman Sachs for hosting a theatrical moment of reflection as we look back at a period that so changed us all.”
