One Night Only to Appear Off-Broadway as Part of the 2012 Araca Project
Hello! We are a group of Chicago-based actors, musicians and teaching artists. Earlier this year, we flew to New York City to pitch a brand new musical to the Araca Group (Wicked, Urinetown).
We're thrilled to announce that our show One Night Only was selected to appear in an Off-Broadway theater this Fall as part of the 2012 Araca Project!
At One Night Only, every night is the opening (and closing) night of a brand new musical. That's because everything that happens on the stage is completely made up on the spot.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring Chicago-style musical improvisation to a new audience. Your contributions will make it possible for our team to travel to New York City and bring this project to life.
When is the Show?
One Night Only will preview in Chicago at Stage 773 (1225 W. Belmont) the week of August 27.
We make our Off-Broadway debut on September 11, 2012 at The American Theater of Actors (314 W. 54th Street).
One Night Only is part of the 2012 Araca Project.
Why Are We Fundraising?
Thankfully, improvisation is budget-friendly. Unlike most theatrical productions, we avoid pesky expenses such as sets, costumes and writers.
Still, because we're taking a Chicago cast and crew to New York City, we do have costs to consider. For those reasons, we have set a modest fundraising goal of $7,000.
