ONE NIGHT STAND is a unique opportunity to go backstage with Rachel Dratch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Richard Kind, Cheyenne Jackson, and other top Broadway and Hollywood writers, actors, and directors who produce four original short musicals, all within 24 hours. Think A Chorus Line meets Project Runway - a window into the creative process with a compressed time frame: the spark, the camaraderie, the sheer panic and the ultimate thrill of expression.



Filmmakers Elisabeth Sperling and Trish Dalton accumulated sixty-five hours of footage over the twenty-four hour period. The final product, edited down to 74 minutes, gives you an up-close, personal glimpse of some of America's favorite actors as they step out of their comfort zones - from Cheyenne Jackson's "fear, sweat, adrenaline and Red Bull" to Rachel Dratch's mounting dread at the prospect of singing alongside Broadways' finest voices. Richard Kind sums it up, "It's like a rollercoaster. You want to throw up, but it's fun!" ONE NIGHT STAND is a record of an insane theatrical challenge and keeps you on The Edge of your seat and laughing.



ONE NIGHT STAND is organized by The 24 Hour Company as a fundraiser for The Exchange, which supports innovative American and British Theater artists.

BWW Review: FRANKIE AND JOHNNY IN THE CLAIRE DE LUNE at 2nd Story Theatre
by Larry O'Brien - Oct 28, 2016

First of all, I was supposed to write a review last month of Charles Morey's adaptation THE LADIES MAN by Georges Feydeau. Unfortunately, the elevator was out of service and, since I get around in a wheelchair, so was I. I finally got to see it the night it closed; It was the night of the full Hunter's Moon, and Warren was hopping-every restaurant we passed was packed. My wife and I had a light dinner around the corner from the theater at the Square Peg. The joint was jumping and deservedly so. Then it was on to THE LADIES MAN, and it was a hoot; Ed Shea was hilarious; the whole production rocked. I still laugh once in a while at some of the goings on. (more...)
