The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, Amanda Seyfried and Melanie Griffith are among the actors who will be putting their ability to learn lines in a hurry to the test after signing on to take part in The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway challenge.
The trio will join actors like Billy Crudup, Peter Dinklage, Justin Long, Bryan Greenberg and Julia Stiles, and Orange Is The New Black co-stars Uzo Aduba and Pablo Schreiber, while working with six writers and six directors, including America Ferrera and Kathy Najimy, to create and perform a series of original short plays created from scratch in just one day.
The finished productions will be staged in front of a live audience at the American Airlines Theater on November 17.
The 14th annual event will benefit the Urban Arts Partnership, New York’s largest arts education organization.
