Actress Rosie Perez is the Artistic Chair for the Urban Arts Partnership and will be an actress in one of the 24-hour plays presented in Santa Monica this Friday. 

The event will feature famous actors, writers, directors and musicians from the screen and stage, including Alanis Morissette, Ben Karlin, John Cho, Michael Ealy, Fred Savage, and Tracie Thoms. Proceeds from the event benefit Urban Arts Partnership, an organization that serves underprivileged children in Los Angeles and New York.

Perez joins Take Two to talk about the pressure of putting together a performance in less than a day and why the Urban Arts Partnership means so much to her personally.
