The event sees artists coming together to write, rehearse, and perform four wholly new musicals within a 24-hour period. The process begins with an 8 PM meeting the night before the performance, after which the writers craft the musicals through the night. In the morning, actors, directors, and choreographers get to work staging the musicals, which are performed that evening for one night only.

The event was part of an in-person return for similar events from The 24 Hour Plays. The 24 Hour Plays On Broadway—where plays are written, rehearsed, and performed in a 24-hour period—returns October 23 for its 23rd annual event at NYC's Town Hall.
