One Night Stand: Christmas Carol-Lin

ONS 01

Last December, Nino was given the wonderful opportunity to join One Night Stand – the cabaret that features the brightest theatre artists both old and new and happens on the first Tuesday of every other month at 12 Monkeys Music Hall and Pub in Century City Mall.

The brainchild of theatre actors Joaquin Valdes, Chinie Concepcion, and Micaele Pineda, One Night Stand showcases some of the best musical talent in the country and gives them the chance to perform songs they love from different shows and genres as themselves and not as a role. And, the special allure of ONS night is that it is a “one night stand” by its very definition, no repeats, no reruns, just one night.

Past ONS themes included Spring Awakening, Confessions of a Diva: Carla Gueverra Laforteza, and the Rent Reunion. For this particular ONS, Nino was ecstatic to be given the chance to join as the theme was the music of Lin Manuel Miranda. A big Lin Manuel fan himself, Nino had just recently seen Hamilton in New York and was thrilled to be given the chance to sing some of the amazing songs from the show.
