Greek-American celebrity stylist George Kotsiopoulos co-emceed the Annual 24 hour Hollywood Rush, to benefit the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s Crystal Meth Recovery Services. During the event forty of Hollywood’s most talented writers, directors and actors came together to create a wildly entertaining and energizing night of theater… all within 24 hours time!! The work starts the evening before the show. A group of writers will have 12 hours to compose six 10-minute plays. At 8 a.m. on the morning of the event, the scripts were handed off to an assembly of directors and actors who then rehearsed the material into the afternoon. After a technical rehearsal and red carpet arrivals, the show started—only 24 hours after the process began.
