Gettin' The Band Back Together

 
musicalcomedy



New in 2018
After losing his job on Wall Street, 40-year-old Mitch Shapiro reconnects with his high school friends, putting their old band back together and entering a high-stakes Battle of the Bands.
Begins July 19th.

From the producers: Mitch Papadopolous always dreamed of being the next Bruce Springsteen, but he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while he thought he had everything – the high paying job, the high-rise apartment – until his 40th birthday when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his Mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. And when his high school arch nemesis (with a 20-year- old grudge and a tangerine spray tan) threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can… by winning The Battle of the Bands. So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang (the math teacher who isn’t good at math, the Irish cop who dreams of being on Broadway, the dermatologist who can’t get a date, and a 16-year- old Jewish rapper who makes Vanilla Ice look cool), and sets out to win the battle… and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind… proving it’s never too late to give your dreams one last shot.

Originally titled "Garage Band," "Gettin' the Band Back Together" was developed through a four-year improvisational rehearsal process by author Ken Davenport and performance group The Grundleshotz. A previous version of the musical premiered at the George Street Playhouse in 2013. Here's a promo from that production:



The Grundleshotz are comprised of Sebastian Arcelus, Fred Berman, Michael Hirstreet, Jenna Coker Jones, Craig Jorczak, Nathan Kaufman, Jay Klaitz, Emily McNamara, Jennifer Miller, Bhavesh Patel, Sarah Saltzberg and Fletcher Young. Tony Award winner John Rando ("On the Town," "Urinetown") directs.
