WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From Andy Blankenbuehler, the Tony Award-winning choreographer of Hamilton and Broadway's hottest new director-choreographer, comes Bandstand — the new musical that explodes with the most high-octane, heart-stopping, and best dancing onstage today.
The year is 1945. As America's soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, a singer and songwriter, returns to rebuild his life with only the shirt on his back and a dream in his heart.
When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation's next great musical superstars, inspiration strikes! Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, each an astonishing musician. Together, they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. Along the way, they discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice, and finally feel like they have a place to call home.
