THE SOLDIERS CAME HOME TO A NEW AMERICA
AND MADE MUSIC THAT INSPIRED THE NATION.
From three-time Tony® winner and Hamilton choreographer, Andy Blankenbuehler, comes a poignant and inspiring new American musical that explodes with infectious music and high-octane, heart-stopping dancing.
It’s 1945. As America’s soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer and songwriter, struggles to rebuild the life he left behind.
When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next great musical superstars, Donny sees a lifeline for himself and some fellow veterans that gives them the purpose they so desperately need. 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.
BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II. It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally” (The New York Times). “The show defies you not to be moved” (Time Out New York).
“THE SHOW DEFIES YOU NOT TO BE MOVED BY ITS VALIANT BAND OF BROTHERS. Showstopping and impassioned, this resonant original musical delivers terrific dance numbers that burst with snazzy individuality and vitality, but its heart is in its shadows and in its efforts to shed light on them.”
-TimeOut New York
