The one-night-only event — pitting cast, creatives and crew against the clock — will be presented at 7:30 PM at The Gramercy Theatre. The third annual show benefits the eXchange and The Orchard Project. In addition to the aforementioned performers, Christopher Gatelli, Adam Gwon, Julia Jordan, Moisés Kaufman, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Ted Sperling, Jeanine Tesori, Marnie Schulenburg, Dee Roscioli, Raven-Symone and David Yazbeck are also scheduled to be part of the day-long process.
As show materials explain: "Imagine 36 of stage and screen's best — Tony Award winners to TV stars and more — all taking the charity plunge to create, cast, direct, rehearse, tech and perform four short musicals in a obscenely small amount of time."
The idea for the event stemmed from The 24 Hour Plays, in which short plays are hatched, written and performed in the course of an entire day. The 24 Hour Musicals adds songs to the mix.
Tickets (starting at $100) are available online at exchangenyc.org.
