The 16th annual gala production of The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway took over the American Airlines Theatre with a host of Broadway actors, including Hamilton's Daveed Diggs; Tracie Thoms, currently starring in Falsettos; and Fun Home star Michael Cerveris. The annual event brings together writers, directors, and actors to create and perform six original plays within 24 hours, November 13-14.

The marathon process for The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway began at 10 PM November 13. The writers, directors, actors, and production staff—many of whom have never worked with or met each other before—gathered for an orientation where they were asked to share one costume piece, one prop, a special skill, and to reveal something that they have always wanted to do on stage. Using this as inspiration, the writers have spent the night developing 10-minute plays, with rehearsals set to begin at 9 AM November 14 prior to the 8 PM gala performance.
