Last night Naomi Watts took part in the Annual 24 Hour Plays in New York City.
The 24 Hour Plays are an event in which entertainment’s biggest names join forces to participate in an annual rite of extreme live performance: they write, direct and perform six original short plays in just 24 hours. The creative process begins at 10PM the night before the show, when a group of six writers, six directors, 24 actors and production staff gather at a theater. After everyone has been briefed, the writers stay on all night, to each compose a ten-minute play. At 7AM the following morning, the directors return, read the plays, and choose their cast. The casts meet for the first time at 8AM and quickly get to work rehearsing. Tech rehearsal runs from 5:00 to 7:30PM and doors open at 7:45PM. At 8:00PM, ink barely dry, the new plays are performed for a live audience.
Naomi starred in “And It Seems to Me a Very Good Sign,” by Harrison Rivers, directed by Jessica Bauman, also starring John Krasinski, Sam Rockwell and Amber Tamblyn.
Photos from this play have been added to Blue Jewel: Naomi Watts. I’ve also added more photos from a few other recent events, and last week various scans were added to the site, including the rare Access DirecTV magazine which features an all new photoshoot.
