I think there’s a sign outside of 24/7 this year that reads, “you must be THIS TALENTED to ride this ride.” Because — look at this list of actors — I would cast any of these over-talented clowns in anything.
And, I guess that makes sense. Here they are, throwing their hats in the ring to be cast in, well… just about anything.
And, yes, they’re all freakishly tall… I mean, talented.

Suffice it to say that people are MAD because there is no 24/7 this January.
Due to winter storm Jonas, 24/7 2016 has been rescheduled for April 9th. Still same concept. Still same writers, directors, cast and crew — hopefully all — still no idea what will happen.
This ain’t no April Fools Joke.
See you at Live Arts on the 9th — and hopefully before.

We are pack rats. Or squirrels. Or hunter-gatherer-types-of-gun-free-amerian-artists. Anyway, look what we found. Charlottesville’s hottest director list. Each and everyone has (voluntarily) signed on for 24/7 2015 at Live Arts.
