Even if you're a musical-theater hater who doesn't enjoy watching people break into song and dance, you might be intrigued by The 24-Hour Musicals: Los Angeles. An offshoot of New York–based the 24 Hour Company's The 24-Hour Plays, The 24-Hour Musicals challenges film and TV actors, writers, composers and choreographers to create four, wholly original short musicals within the 24 hours prior to performance, from 8 p.m. to 8 p.m. The lineup for tonight's first L.A. event features Shoshana Bean, Wayne Brady, Nellie McKay, Michelle Visage, Garrett Clayton, Janina Gavankar, Alicia Witt, Vella Lovell, Donna Lynne Champlin, Amanda Seales, Andrew Leeds, Deborah Ann Woll and others. Who knows, you may witness the next Hamilton. Speaking of, VIP ticket holders will have a chance to win orchestra seats to Hamilton. Proceeds benefit the Dramatists Guild of America's Legal Defense Fund.
