Actress wows crowd with 24-hour play on Broadway

Jennifer Aniston had a one-night stand in Manhattan on Monday, impressing the crowd at the 6th Annual 24 Hour Plays on Broadway benefit, which featured six 10-minute plays conceived, written, rehearsed and performed all within one day.

In her play, Three Girls and Bob – her Broadway debut – Aniston played a single woman who attends an intimacy workshop with two friends and then tries out its lessons on a hapless man. ‘It shouldn’t be this hard,’ her character says of single life.

‘We had a real boost from Jennifer Aniston,’ says Costar Perez – who is on the board of the event’s beneficiary, Working Playground.

‘She was as sweet as pie. I really appreciated her coming because she raised the profile of the event and that is going to help so much. She didn’t have to do this. She didn’t have to take time out of her schedule.”
