Yesterday, participants of The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway took to the stage to fundraise for the Urban Arts Partnership in NYC. The event began Sunday evening, when the players joined forces to write, direct, and prepare for six original plays—all in less than 24 hours. The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway, which began in 1997, is well known for its star-studded cast and crew. Some of the many talented actors who took part in this year's shows are Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sasha Alexander, Jason Biggs, Zachary Levi, James McAvoy, Maggie Q, Diane Neal, and Jordin Sparks. WhoSay was lucky enough to capture a sneak peek at the rehearsal process for most of these plays. Enjoy the rainbow tutus!
