24 Hour Play Lineup Revealed

Yey – Julia Stiles will join Melanie Griffith, Amanda Seyfried, Uzo Aduba, Peter Dinklage, Nina Dobrev and siz other actors next month in the 14th annual benefit “The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway,” which asks over a dozen actors, six writers and six directors to come up with six original short plays over the course of a day.

Rosie Perez, a veteran of the 24-hour plays, had this advice for participants: “Anything you can do outside of being reckless and taking illegal substances do it! You’re going to need everything.”

The finished productions will be staged in front of a live audience at the American Airlines Theater on November 17. The 14th annual event will benefit the Urban Arts Partnership, New York’s largest arts education organization.
