  • Emmanuelle Chriqui
  • Billy Crudup
  • Brooklyn Decker
  • Rachel Dratch

  • Gabourey Sidibe
  • Fisher Stevens
  • Amber Tamblyn

Sponsoring the event for its seventh year is Montblanc, which also sponsors the Young Writer’s Program which chooses a winner to co-write one of the six plays.  The show will go on (with many exhausted actors!) on November 12th at 8:00 pm at the American Airlines Theater.
