The creative process for 'The 24 Hour Musicals' will begin at 10PM on Sunday, January 20th -- the night before the show -- when a group of four writer-composer-lyricist teams, four directors, 16 performers and a production staff gather at Joe's Pub. After casts and crews have been briefed, each writer is tasked with composing a 15-minute play by 7AM the following morning, when the directors return to read and select their piece. The casts will meet for the first time at 8AM and, over the next 12 hours, the plays are rehearsed and produced for a live presentation. That evening, ink barely dry, the six new plays -- interspersed with six musical acts -- will be performed for a live audience. Proceeds from 'The 24 Hour Musicals' benefit the Exchange, a NYC not-for-profit that develops new theatre work through productions and its development center for innovative theatre companies and artists in the Catskills, the Orchard Project.
