‘The Guys’ takes center stage in Syracuse
“The Guys”, directed by Pat Catchouny debuts Friday, Aug. 29 at the Central New York Playhouse, ShoppingTown Mall, 3649 Erie Blvd., Syracuse. All Thursday-Saturday performances begin at 8 p.m. (doors open for dinner at 6:30 p.m.) and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m. (doors open at 1:30).
“The Guys” takes place less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks when 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.
