Last night, November 15, Montblanc presented the 10th annual THE 24 HOUR PLAYS ON BROADWAY at The American Airlines Theatre. The one night only performance benefits Urban Arts Partnership, an organization that brings arts education into New York City classrooms. Participating in the event was Leslie Bibb (Iron Man), Guillermo Diaz (Weeds), Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live), America Ferrera (Emmy Award winner for Ugly Betty), Gaby Hoffman (Life During Wartime), Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker), Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU), Diane Neal (Law and Order: SVU), Rosie Perez (Artistic Board Chair of Urban Arts Partnership), Kyra Sedgwick (Emmy Award winner for The Closer), Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Show), Fisher Stevens (Oscar Winning producer of The Cove ), Julia Stiles (Oleanna), Tracie Thoms, Lynn Nottage and others. 

BroadwayWorld was on hand for the evening and brings you photo coverage below.

THE 24 HOUR PLAYS ON BROADWAY attracts some of entertainment's biggest names as they join forces to participate in a rite of extreme live performance: writing, directing, and performing six original short plays, all in just 24 hours. The creative process for THE 24 HOUR PLAYS ON BROADWAY will begin at 10PM on Sunday, November 14th - the night before the show - when a group of six writers, six directors, 24 actors, two musical guests, and a production staff gather at the American Airlines Theatre. After each of the cast members share a costume, prop and their stage desires-- each writer is tasked with composing a ten-minute play by 7 AM the following morning, when the directors return to read and select their piece. The casts will meet for the first time at 8 AM and, over the next 12 hours the plays are rehearsed and produced for a live presentation. At 8:00 PM, ink barely dry, the six new plays - interspersed with six musical acts - will be performed for a live audience.
