The one-night-only event — pitting cast, creatives and crew against the clock — will take place Feb. 8 at 7:30 PM at The Gramercy Theatre. The third annual show will benefit the eXchange and The Orchard Project. Marnie Schulenburg, Dee Roscioli and Raven-Symone are also part of the cast. In addition to the aforementioned performers, Christopher Gatelli, Adam Gwon, Julia Jordan, Moisés Kaufman, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Ted Sperling, Jeanine Tesori and David Yazbeck are also slated to lend their talents to 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.
