The 2014 24 Hour Musicals
On Monday, April 7, 2014, The 24 Hour Company teams up with the Exchange to produce the sixth ever 24 Hour Musicals. Four short (15 minute), brand-new musicals will be written, cast, rehearsed, and performed at the famed Irving Plaza over the period of a single day, featuring an all-new all-star line up of Broadway performers, stars from TV and film, great composers and writers, directors and -- to top it all off -- choreographers and musical directors. The participants will be a who’s who of American musical theatre and film, TV and music, collaborating, crashing, conspiring, and cramming to perform four new musicals in one day.
Participants currently include Constantine Maroulis (American Idol, Rock of Ages), Lea Delaria (Orange Is The New Black), Ashley Fink (Glee), Wesley Taylor (SMASH, Rock of Ages), Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Avenue Q), de'Adre Aziza (Passing Strange), Julian Fleisher (February House), Kathy Najimy (King of the Hill, Sister Act), Dan Finnerty (The Dan Band), Ted Sperling (The Other Josh Cohen, Striking 12), Hettienne Park (Hannibal), Theo Stockman (American Idiot), Charl Brown (Motown: The Musical), Jonathan Marc Sherman (Things We Want, Clive), Martha Wash (The Weather Girls), Christian Campbell (Reefer Madness: The Musical), Dee Roscioli (Wicked), Jenny Giering (Saint-Ex), Lance Horne (The $trip, Amandine), Theresa Rebeck (Seminar), Justin Levine (Bonfire Night), Brian Crawley (Violet), Eisa Davis (Passing Strange, Bulrusher), Robin Goldwasser (People Are Wrong!), Franca Vercelloni (A Christmas Carol), Sarah Schenkkan (Wicked), Julie Reiber (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Sami Gayle (Blue Bloods), Sherri Barber (Herman Kline's Midlife Crisis), Lileana Blain-Cruz (Co-Artistic Director, Yale Cabaret), Marlo Hunter (Unlock'd), and Shea Sullivan (Pageant, Jawbreaker).
Like its cousin The 24 Hour Plays, The 24 Hour Musicals have been a sell out success for the past incarnations, with over 100 wonderful stars of stage and screen already taking part. The show was the subject of its own documentary, ONE NIGHT STAND, which has been a film festival favorite and has run on more than 500 screens nationwide.
Proceeds from The 24 Hour Musicals support the Orchard Project, the development center run by the Exchange. Simply put, the Orchard Project is where the best theatre companies go to develop their new ideas. The Orchard Project birthed the play All the Way, currently running on Broadway, the Tony-winning 33 Variations on Broadway and Obie- winning The Shipment and Architecting -- and last season, shows at the Royal Court in London, The Public Theatre, Playwrights Horizons, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Humana Festival and Yale Rep were all developed at the Orchard Project. In just six years, it has become a preeminent place for theatre companies and artists to develop new projects, and twice the New York Times has featured the Orchard Project as a leader in new theatre development.
