12 years later, 9/11 resonates in play 'The Guys'

The morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Jenny Christian, like most people, didn't quite know what to do. She felt oddly compelled to get to her job as a hostess at DeSha's restaurant, despite the feeling the world was coming apart with the terror attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. She stopped and lingered with others at the TVs in the windows of Barney Miller's downtown, watching the World Trade Center in flames after being struck by two commercial airliners. Her best friend lived in Manhattan, and a co-worker's father worked at the Pentagon, which had also been struck.
