The 24 Hour Plays

Saturday, August 26, 2006

Final 10 shows of "24 is 10" this weekend!

Hello, all,

It's been a helluva week, to quote a tagline from a Fringe show last year.

Today at 8;45 PM and tomorrow at 6PM are the last two shows of "24 is 10: The best of THE 24 HOUR PLAYS". Reviews of the other shows have been great (scroll down), and we've got great plays and artists (some of whom are toiling away as I write) for your viewing pleasure.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday's shows all had big gooey fistfuls of classic moments, and were real successes. In fact, we have reviews to prove it.

First, the NY Times notice is like deja vu from our Voice review from the first-ever Fringe festival: "By creating their shows on the fly, the artists of the "24-Hour Plays," which are dependably messy, spontaneous and occasionally in bad taste, prove to be even fringier than the Fringe." Pretty cool for a company they describe as "the popular showcase that features some of the biggest names in the theater". Click and scroll to read the whole thing.

Backstage caught Tuesday's "People's Choice Night" and loved it. "...One can sense the theatrical excitement with which they were originally written and performed. It is precisely this burst of fresh energy that makes "24 Is 10" an ideal Fringe show." Read the full review here.

Broadway.com was there Wednesday, liked what they saw and wrote about it here. So did this fella.
