Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella) and Corey Cott (Gigi) star in the Swing-era musical Bandstand. Directed by Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler, the show begins previews March 31 prior to an April 26 opening night at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
The cast and creative team invited the press to a special sneak peek of the new musical at the Rainbow Room March 7. The company also surprised birthday boy Blankenbuehler with a special cake in his honor.
The production states, “Bandstand brings the swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage. When a national contest to find America’s next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer, and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power. Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), starring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and featuring an explosive original score, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.”
