This was a fun movie. It is exciting to see some performers take on such a daunting task. Anyone who has ever been involved in the production of any type of show can understand the pressure, work and time that is taken... And they did it in 24 hours.
I would have liked to see the final musicals from beginning to end, rather than in pieces, but a great movie.
IF YOU GO... Make sure you stay after thr first set of credits for the cast interviews!

Good premise and shows how many really talented people there are in NYC alone but the movie did not do the process or the participants justice and cheated the audience out of a really good time. First, the movie info shows it is 90 min long. Its not, its 50 min long including credits. the movie felt like it was in a rush to end and never let us feel anything about the process or the performances.
A real shame since this had all the potential of being a really fun experience. Instead, I felt totally ripped off.
I won't even comment on the fact that the movie kept tile-ing throughout and at the end the picture just went black and we were left to watch the credits role in the dark. Not sure who was responsible for this malfunction but when we told the theater manager he couldn't care less.

"One Night Stand" is nail-biting, poignant and very funny--a depiction of the mysterious workings of the creative process and the gut-wrenching anxiety that comes with performing. The movie features some incredibly talented Broadway stars (Cheyenne Jackson, Mandy Gonzalez, Alicia Witt, Richard Kind, Rachel Dratch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and many others) and gives you a glimpse into their process--what it's like to pull together a performance and make it look effortless, when in fact it is anything but. The movie is inspiring and totally captivating. I think it would be great to share with children, and anyone interested in the arts.

It was really fun and interesting to see. The only thing I did not like was the editing. They should have let us see each show in it's entirety. SO boo for the editing.. but the content was wonderful... stay till after the credits.. there are more interviews...

Last night was one of the most impressive 75 min. of talent I've ever seen. I'm aware that theater is the most collaborative of the arts, but what these sleep deprived people were able to accomplish was mind blowing. From nothing but bouncing ideas of each other, these fearless talents created 4 mini musicals! From the performers to the tech people, it was a privilage to witness their special world of make believe. The only regret I have is that because of it's 1 night only showing, I can't recommend it to others I know would appreciate it. As they recently sang on Broadway,"There's a special kinda people known as show people" Brava!!!!!!
