"The creative process of The 24 Hour Plays in Los Angeles will begin at 10 PM on the night before the show," according to press notes. "Six writers, six directors, twenty-four actors, a musical guest and production team will meet at The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College of Performing Arts. Each cast member will brainstorm ideas before the writers begin composing the plays, which must be completed by 6 AM the next morning. With only twelve hours to rehearse, the actors will perform the six new plays, interspersed with musical acts, for the very first and only time before a live audience."
Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College of Performing Arts is located at 1310 11th Street in Santa Monica. For ticket information visit www.urbanarts.tix.com.
