WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Presented in association with New York Magazine and Joe's Pub, four brand new musicals are written, cast, rehearsed and performed at Joe's Pub in a single day. The 24 Hour Musicals feature an all-new all-star line up of Broadway performers, great composers, writers, directors, choreographers and musical directors. Led by creative director Ted Sperling (musical director of Light in the Piazza, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and South Pacific and director of the Public's See What I Wanna See and Striking 12), the participants are a who's who of American musical theatre, all working under one roof in the smallest amount of time.
