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 that turns dance into a live sporting event.  It’s got just as much heart (and potential for failure!) as the 2016 World Series.  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. 

It will be humorous, it will be fun and, despite your cynical self, you will laugh.

Monica Bill Barnes & Company joins forces with WP Theater in association with New Neighborhood for One Night Only (running as long as we can). WP Theater (formerly known as Women’s Project Theater), under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Lisa McNulty and Managing Director Michael Sag, presents Monica Bill Barnes & Company in their Off-Broadway debut as part of their 2017-2018 40th Anniversary Season at WP Theater (2162 Broadway at 76th Street). New Neighborhood is a theatre/TV/music company whose sincerity and authenticity are so combustible they cannot be housed under one roof for too long without doing severe structural damage.
