The Pressure Is On: America Ferrera, Anthony Mackie to Star Montblanc’s 24 Hour Plays on Broadway
Familiar faces like Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Rachel Dratch, Rosie Perez, Seth Green, Vanessa Hudgens, and Emmanuelle Chriqui are all slated to participate in The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway” — one night of delightful theatrical surprises presented by Montblanc on Monday, November 12th. The 12th annual performance will begin at 10pm on Sunday (November 11) with a team consisting of six writers, six directors, 24 actors, two musical guests, and a production staff, who will gather at the American Airlines Theatre. The group will then rehearse, write and stage a show that will benefit Urban Arts Partnership; an organization that works to advance the intellectual, social and artistic development of underserved public school students through arts-integrated education programs, a noble effort that seeks to close the achievement gap in public education.
The crux of this one day performance: artists gather 24 hours prior to performance to write, produce, and rehearse performances brought to audiences just one evening later. The pressure is on!
