They do it every year, usually at Minetta Street. Tickets are kind of expensive, but it's for a really good cause (children's afterschool arts programs) and usually a lot of fun.

they do local productions sans movie stars every three months or so. they local production were so good that they attracted the attention of the celebs. The production team of the celebrity play is headed by the same folks who put on the loca,l version of the 24 hour plays. plays are hit or miss - sometimes awesome, sometimes putrid but always entertaining.
