Highlights From Hands on a Hardbody on Broadway

Based on the 1997 S. R. Bindler documentary about an endurance contest in which entrants must keep one hand on the surface of a vehicle at all times in order to win a brand new pickup truck, Hands on a Hardbody charts the course of ten hard-luck Texans striving for the American dream. With music by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio and music and lyrics by Amanda Green, the tunes draw from influences such as Dr. John, Aretha Franklin and ZZ Top. After a successful 2012 run at the La Jolla Playhouse, the production arrives on Broadway under the direction of Neil Pepe and stars Keith Carradine, Allison Case and Hunter Foster.
