The hilarious documentary "One Night Stand" gives an unbridled and candid look behind the Broadway curtain, as some of New York's top theatre, film and television actors, writers and directors are given 24 hours to write, cast, rehearse and perform four short musicals. Likened to 'A Chorus Line' meets 'Project Runway', 'One Night Stand' captures the excitement, anxiety, camaraderie, and sheer panic that leads to the final thrill of the finished performance. From the blank page to the live stage: "One Night Stand' unveils the magic as talented artists take the dare to create something from nothing. 

Among the talented participants were: Actors: Cheyenne JacksonJesse Tyler Ferguson, Mandy GonzalezNellie McKay,Tracie ThomsAlicia WittRichard Kind,Rachel DratchRoger BartTamara TunieScarlet StrallenTheresa McCarthyCapathia JenkinsMarnie Schulenburg; Writers: Gina GionfriddoJonathan Marc Sherman,Rinne GroffBrian Crawley; Composers: Lance HorneRobin Goldwasser and Julia Greenberg, Pasek and Paul, Gabe Kahane; Directors: Ted SperlingTrip CullmanMaria MileafSam Gold.
