ONE NIGHT ONLY
(running as long as we can)
Co-Produced by WP THEATER and MONICA BILL BARNES & COMPANY in association with NEW NEIGHBORHOOD
September 9-October 8, 2017
WP Theater at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre
2162 Broadway (at 76th Street), New York, NY 10024
Following last spring’s The Museum Workout, which led audience members through a choreographed workout routine in the hallowed halls of The Met and became the hottest ticket in town—Monica Bill Barnes & Company now joins forces with WP Theater and New Neighborhood for One Night Only (running as long as we can). Known for bringing dance where it doesn’t belong, the company makes its Off-Broadway debut with this hilarious and heartbreaking new show celebrating the ephemeral nature of everything, including our own abilities.
Tonight the clock is running…and so are they! Long time performing partners Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass will leave it all on the field in this world premiere production. It’s got just as much heart (and potential for failure!) as last year’s World Series, except there are no balls, no bats, and it’s only 63 minutes long. Everyday movement will be taken to monumental new heights as Barnes and Bass summon a night of unexpected joy from manic finger snapping, competitive spinning, and non-stop athleticism. Don’t be fooled by the title, One Night Only happens seven times a week and they’ll be making up the rules as they go.
