Monica Bill Barnes & Company’s “One Night Only (running as long as we can)”

Monica Bill Barnes & Company’s “One Night Only (running as long as we can)”

World Premiere

WP Theater presents
Monica Bill Barnes & Company
in association with New Neighborhood
created by Monica Bill Barnes, Anna Bass and Robert Saenz de Viteri
choreographed by Monica Bill Barnes
designed by Jane Cox and Kelly Hanson 

Now thru October 8

Tonight the clock is running… and so are they! Longtime 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 movements 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.

Following The Museum Workout, which led audience members on 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 in association with New Neighborhood for One Night Only (running as long as we can). Known for bringing dance where it doesn’t belong, this company makes its Off-Broadway debut with this hilarious and heartbreaking new show celebrating the ephemeral nature of everything, including our own abilities.
