Gettin’ the Band Back Together features a book by Ken Davenport (who also produces) and the performance group Grundleshotz, who helped develop the show through a series of improv rehearsals. Mark Allen penned the score, and Sarah Saltzberg (a member of Grundleshotz) provided additional material.
Gettin’ the Band Back Together had its world premiere in 2013 at George Street Playhouse, also directed by Rando.
