Bandstand: The New American Musical
Tony-winning director and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), brings to Broadway a story of love, loss, and triumph! The play is set in the swing-dominated era of the 40s and brings to life the struggles of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski.
Novitski and his band of fellow WWII veterans enter a contest to find America's next big swing band. Joined by war widow Julia, this band of misfits struggles to move past the lingering effects of the battlefield. Will they win the top prize? Or, will they break within and crumble under pressure?
The show stars two-time Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes(Cinderella, Grease, Bonnie and Clyde), and Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies, Gigi).
