A lot can happen in one night! That’s the motto of Abingdon’s One Night Only Series, a series which strives to create a once in a lifetime theatrical experience. Each event is a chance for us to orchestrate the magic that happens when artists come together to create. Voices young and old, unique and never repeated, a chance to revisit classics and hear a new voice for the first time.



One Night Only Series

Where does a bullied 12-year-old who’s all of 4’6” and 70 lbs go to find a place where he can be strong, powerful, respected? On the back of a thoroughbred racehorse, where being small is of the highest value. But when that SMALL kid begins to grow, what lengths will he go to stay on the track? Robert Montano shares a roller-coaster auto- biographical story of his transformation from a tiny bullied boy who just wanted to dance, to an apprentice jockey learning the culture of the racetrack, to a professional rider, to self-destructive addict trying to maintain the rigorous demands of jockey-life, and finally to Broadway and beyond.

The Dork Knight

A play about one man’s obsession with Batman…

A look into one man’s obsession with movies about another man’s obsession with dressing up like a rodent and punching people, The Dork Knight traces the ups and downs of actor Jason O’Connell’s personal and professional life as seen through the prism of his love/hate relationship with the Batman movies.  Featuring numerous “cameos” from the bat-voices in O’Connell’s head, The Dork Knight is a trip down cinematic memory lane that begins with the 1989 Michael Keaton blockbuster, and strolls past George Clooney’s bat-nipples, Christian Bale’s bat-growl, and a couple of iconic Jokers en route to (sigh) Batfleck. O’Connell’s funny, intimate memoir demonstrates how one’s “inner geek” can guide and inspire in good times and in bad.

In the pressurized few minutes of a speed date, two singles suggest to each other what they think their entire lives would be like if they allowed their brief tête-à-tête to go beyond the “switch partners” bell. Competing comical and fraught visions of the future leave them wondering if the person they have just met is the Date from Hell or the Date of a Lifetime.
