Following the 24 Hour Theater Project

As I post this, it's the half-hour call for the first performance in the 24 Hour Theater Project. Sadly, I am too embroiled in the two shows that I'm putting in at Actors' Playhouse, but I've been keeping track.

Christine Dolen has been looking in on the project throughout the day, and posting updates in her blog. I have a feed from her blog in the sidebar, but it only updates every few hours. The current feed is behind, and I recommend going directly to it.

She outlines the Project in LET'S PLAY. She lists the playwrights, directors, and the players.

The action really starts in RANDOM ACTS OF CREATIVITY. The playwrights draw their play's title, the director, and the cast.

Then she checks in on the progress in REHEARSE, MEMORIZE, AND OPEN. Scripts delivered around 7:30 am, and then the FUN starts. Dolen summarizes the plays, reviews the casts, and reports on the overall mood. She reports: far, the 24-Hour Theatre Project is fostering an exhilarating sense of creative engagement, the likes of which South Florida's theater community hasn't seen.
Curtain's at eight: quit reading this and RUN!!!!
