Play Date

Every year, a cabal of top Hollywood talent meets in NYC for a closed-door, one-day-only project. This year, you’re invited.

And you don’t even have to read Dianetics.

You just have to hit Broadway to see The 24 Hour Plays, available exclusively through our friends at CultureHorde.

Typically a charity event that’s only open to Hollywood insiders, The 24 Hour Plays is a theatrical fire drill of sorts.

A cadre of high-profile writers, directors and actors (Scarlett Johansson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jack Black, etc.) converge on NYC for a Friday evening brainstorm, after which the writers – presumably abetted by copious amounts of Adderall and Jack Black (same thing?) – stay up all night writing six scripts.

The actors return the next morning, rehearse for 12 straight hours and then take to the stage at 8 P.M.

Typically, average joes are relegated to the mezzanine. But CultureHorde has prime orchestra seats, and they’re letting a limited number of InsideHook readers get in on the action.

And as a guest of CultureHorde, you’ll enjoy a cocktail soirée before the show and have a chance to rub elbows with the talent (announced just ahead of the event) at a private after-party.

Which starlet to share a drink with is up to you.

Nota bene: While CultureHorde events are usually only open to their members, they’ve made a special dispensation for InsideHook readers – simply click here and enter “InsideHookGuest” as your invitation code and “Inside Hook” as the referring member. Enjoy the show.
