Broadway is about to get a little sexier. US Weekly reports that Megan Fox is set to make her Broadway debut this November at an American Airlines Theater in New York City. The actress will hit the stage as a part of the “24 Hour Plays” project, which serves as an annual fundraiser to benefit the Urban Arts Partnership (all proceeds are generously given to a different charity every year). And the title of the project should be taken very literally. Basically, what happens is the cast and crew create and produce six short plays in the span of one day, thus making the entire process happen in just 24 hours. I’m not really sure how something like that can be done, but I’m definitely intrigued. I just wouldn’t expect a fancy set design since there’s really only so much you can do in one day.
But Fox won’t be the only A-list star gracing the great white way in this unique set of plays. According to Ontheredcarpet.com, Fox will be joined by the likes of Sarah Silverman, Precious star Gabourey Sidibe, Tracy Morgan, and Jesse Eisenberg. The show takes place on November 14 for $250 a seat, which isn’t too bad considering the star quality being brought to the performance. Tickets are available here.
I’m actually really surprised that Fox is choosing to go the Broadway route, especially for this particular project. Having never done Broadway before, you’d think she’d want to be given an adequate amount of time to rehearse instead of just 24 hours. It seems like it would be very nerve-racking for a pro, let alone a first-timer. Do you think Fox can handle the pressure? Let’s just hope she doesn’t compare anyone to Hitler.
