The cast of Bandstand met the press March 7 to discuss bringing the new swing musical to Broadway and give a taste of the high-energy score.
Tony nominee Laura Osnes and Corey Cott led the cast in a performance of four numbers from Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor's score at 30 Rock's Rainbow Room prior to beginning performances at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre March 31. Opening night is set for April 26.
In addition to Osnes and Cott, the Andy Blankenbuehler-helmed production features Beth Leavel, Joe Carroll, Brandon James Ellis, James Nathan Hopkins, Geoff Packard, and Joey Pero. With an original swing-infused score as a backdrop, they tell the story of a group of WWII veterans in 1945 who team up with a young war widow to enter a national radio contest in search of the next big swing band.
In the clips above, the cast performs the number "Nobody." Check out a few more songs from Osnes and Cott below.
"Love Will Come and Find Me Again"
