United Artists Theater at Ace Hotel, Los Angeles, California, United States
The 24 Hour Musicals: Los Angeles is an intensive theatrical endeavor where a team of over 100 (including artists from Broadway, film, television and music) will come together to write, compose, rehearse and perform four original musicals within a 24 hour time span at the beautiful Theater at Ace. For 22 years, The 24 Hour Plays have brought together extraordinary artists to create time-limited theater around the world, raising millions of dollars for charity.
In this historic theater (built in 1927 by United Artists), The 24 Hour Musicals: Los Angeles will celebrate and support the work of the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit arm of the Dramatists Guild of America which advocates for the freedom of expression on behalf of all who are confronting censorship on stages across America.
