Fresh off its critically acclaimed world premiere engagement at Paper Mill Playhouse last fall, Bandstand comes to Broadway with an explosive original score and choreography inspired by the high energy swing rhythms of the 1940s. Directed and choreographed by Hamilton Tony-winner Andy Blankenbuehler and starring Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde) and Corey Cott (Newsies, Gigi), Bandstand is an American story of love, loss, triumph and the everyday men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.
SYNOPSIS: When a 1945 national radio contest to find America’s next big swing band offers a chance at instant fame and Hollywood fortune, singer/songwriter Donny Novitski must whip his wise-cracking gang of jazzers into fighting shape. Teaming up with the beautiful young World War II widow Julia as their singer, they struggle to confront the lingering effects and secrets of the battlefield that threaten to tear them apart.
