The 24 Hour Musicals returns October 29 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway. This year’s event benefits The Lilly Awards, paying homage to the women who are changing the landscape of American theatre, with appearances by Lynn Nottage, Lisa Kron, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Todd London, and Sarah Ruhl.
The theatrical marathon, inspired by The 24 Hour Plays, assembles teams of writers and directors at random at 11 PM on the evening prior to the performance. The creative teams must complete the book and score by the time the actors arrive at 9 AM the next morning, for a performance at 8 PM.
