At what price comes forgiveness when no one can forget?
High above New York City construction is furiously paced to erect the new One World Trade Center. The ironworkers of the Local 40 keep America’s most ambitious skyscraper climbing to the clouds.

But when a materials elevator crashes, all work is temporarily put on hold until the city building inspector arrives.

And the city inspector is a Muslim.

In a play about forgiveness, Freedom Tower pits the price of pain against the 110-story-high tract of memory, and whether a new building is truly enough to help us move on.

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum will host an evening of mystery, sweets, and fun. Guests will enjoy gourmet desserts, a performance of the musical “Gumshoes Never Cry, But Coppers Sometimes Do” and an hour guided tour through the museum rooms of the asylum.

Set in Manhattan in 1940, “Gumshoes” follows Private Eye Dirk Manzman and Captain Finian Flanagan O’Callahan as they try to solve the murders of several prominent businessmen and keep America out of the brewing world war. “Gumshoes” features a cast of memorable characters from rich widows with shady pasts to an aging show girl, a female mobster, and a German police lieutenant who wants to take over Manhattan–and the world!! Best of all, the audience gets to decide whodunnit with a special ballot; vote and four characters to choose from!

The musical will be performed at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. TALA served as a sanctuary for the mentally ill from 1864 until 1994. Since opening for tours in March 2008 to January 2012, over 125,000 travelers have visited this National Historic Landmark.
