(AP) The stars were out in force on Broadway and they were frantic.

The coffee-fueled benefit performance of "The 24 Hour Plays" was held Monday at the American Airlines Theatre, an annual event in which two dozen actors this time including Jesse Tyler Ferguson, James McAvoy, Jason Biggs and Zachary Levi teamed up with six writers and six directors to write and rehearse a half-dozen plays over a single day.

The six playwrights include David Lindsay-Abaire, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Lynn Nottage, Theresa Rebeck, Rachel Axler and a sophomore from New York University who won a spot.

Some of the other stars who showed up included David Cross, Rachel Dratch, Rosie Perez, Tim Daly, Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks, Josh Lucas, Jay Pharoah and Maggie Q .
