WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Bandstand brings the swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of singer-songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage.
When a national contest to find America's next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power.
Directed and choreographed by multi-Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights); starring Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies the Musical), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone); and featuring an explosive original score, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.
