Another Urban Riff Presents PRE, an original play written and directed by Steven Tanenbaum

PRE is an original play inspired by Another Urban Riff's actual experience of resuming their critically acclaimed play, MONO, in a Lower East Side theatre just three days after 9/11.

"The title literally refers to the 90 minutes before the first play after 9/11 re-opens. The subject is expressed through the comic interaction between the actors, director, and various Lower East Siders who enter the theatre between 6:30 and 8:00pm. PRE also refers to and re-creates the small pocket of time directly following the attacks when all New Yorkers acted as if they were part of an ensemble."

Cast: Kristen Abate, Chris Cipriano, JR Dziengel, Anna Elwood, Brett Glass, Keara Gorman, Nina Lisandrello, Marianna Mcclellan, Tchelet Semel, Jarrod Zayas
