The 2017 Tony Award winner
In Bandstand, it is 1945 and the boys are back. With American soldiers returning home, singer-songwriter Private First Class Donny Novitski dreams of rebuilding his life, forgetting his demons, and hopes for everything to be just like it was before. When NBC announces a national competition, a Tribute To The Troops, Donny joins forces with a motley group of musicians, and together they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen: a band of veterans. On their journey, they fight to have their voices heard, struggle to trust each other, and together must make a sacrifice that could end it all.Bandstand began its Broadway run at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In The Heights). Music by Richard Oberacker. Book and lyrics are by Robert Taylor and Oberacker. Bandstand won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Choreography and received a nomination for Best Orchestrations (Bill Elliott and Greg Anthony Rassen).
