Hands on a Hardbody cast members Jon Rua, Allison Case, Jacob Ming-Trent, Janet Krupin, Jim Newman, Kathleen Monteleone and William Youmans were among the performers who joined Tony nominee Amanda Green for her Sept. 29 concert, Amanda Green and Friends, at Birdland. Here are highlights from the evening. 

The evening, which celebrated the release of the Ghostlight Records original Broadway cast album of Hands on a Hardbody, also featured High Fidelity star Jenn Colella, Van Hughes and Kyle Dean Massey. 

The evening included members of the original Broadway "Pit Crew" for Hardbody, including musical director Matt Gallagher on piano, Skip Krevens on pedal steel, Shannon Ford on drums and Skip Ward on bass.

Videography is by Shoshana Feinstein.

The Tony Award-nominated score, written by Green and Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, features blues, folk, gospel and R&B music. The album, which was released Aug. 27, features a cut song from the show called “The Tryers” as a special bonus track.

Inspired by the 1997 documentary of the same name about a group of Texans competing for a pickup truck, the musical began previews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre Feb. 23 prior to a March 21 opening. The show played its last performance April 13.
