44 Lights, LLC is presenting The Off-Broadway premiere of 44 Lights: The Musical, with book, music, and lyrics by Tim Tuttle. See photos from the production. 

Directed by Nancy Robillard, with music direction by Rich Lamb, the show is playing a limited engagement through Saturday, May 25, 2024 at AMT Theater (354 West 45th Street – between 8th & 9th Aves). 

Tim Tuttle knew over thirty friends, neighbors, and former co-workers, who didn’t come home on September 11th. 44 Lights: The Musical is a musical journey to healing and a labor of love that has taken over two decades to create.  With original folk/rock music and stories based on friends, neighbors, and colleagues, 44 Lights takes the audience from the most beautiful day of the year, into the depths of disaster, and ultimately towards the restorative brilliance of catharsis.

Tim wrote his first song the night of 9/11 in an effort to communicate his pain and loss through music. Two weeks later, he recorded it with Jeremy Slansky in a New York studio. One song turned into many more and then a memorial concert on the first anniversary. “Music From Ground Zero” came to life from the ashes outside their office window in downtown Manhattan.

The concerts became an annual act of remembrance at local venues. Three CDs, twenty concerts, and a documentary about the road they travelled to healing after such immense devastation, ultimately led Tim to writing a musical. Casting 10 actors and four musicians, he has created an experience for audiences to follow his personal story and find their own journey. 

“We need to honor the fallen not just by remembering them, but by living a life that makes them proud,” declares Mr. Tuttle. “They are frozen in time. We must do something positive with our extra moments, the time granted to us.”

44 Lights is the first play that has attempted to deal with the day of 9/11 at Ground Zero in New York City. Love always conquers death. Our friends and family are never gone, they walk beside us, they live on in our hearts and mind. Forever.
