Bandstand

 



New in 2017
A new Swing-era musical that follows a group of World War II veterans who come together in 1945 to create a swing band for a national radio competition.
Begins March 31st.

From the producers: Set in the smoke-filled, swing-fueled night clubs of 1945, "Bandstand" brings the against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow WWII veterans to the stage. When a national radio contest to find America’s next big swing band offers a chance at instant fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his wise-cracking gang of jazzers into fighting shape. Teaming up with the beautiful young war widow Julia as their singer, they struggle to confront the lingering effects and secrets of the battlefield that threaten to tear them apart. Playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they risk everything in the final live broadcast to redefine the meaning of victory. With an explosive original score and choreography inspired by the high energy swing rhythms of the era, Bandstand is a truly American story of love, loss, triumph and the everyday men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.

The original production of "Bandstand" (then titled "The Bandstand") played a critically acclaimed world premiere engagement in 2015 at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse.



"Bandstand" stars Two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes ("Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella," "Bonnie & Clyde"), Corey Cott ("Gigi," "Newsies") and Tony winner Beth Leavel ("The Drowsy Chaperone"). Andy Blankenbuehler, a Tony winner for his choreography of “In the Heights” and “Hamilton,” directs.
