Broadway's Bandstand Announces Closing Date
The musical, starring Corey Cott and Laura Osnes, will end its run at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Andy Blankenbuehler directs and choreographs the production, which is about a group of soldiers who have just returned home from the front lines of World War II. When this motley assortment of men is given an important opportunity, one that involves music, they find themselves opening up in ways that make them feel whole again. Blankenbuehler recently took home a 2017 Tony Award for his Bandstand choreography.
The musical ran at the Paper Mill Playhouse before transferring to Broadway in March 2017.
The cast features Beth Leavel, Joey Pero, Joe Carroll, Brandon James Ellis, James Nathan Hopkins, and Geoff Packard. The creative team includes Paloma Young (costumes), Nevin Steinberg (sound), David Korins (set), Jeff Croiter (lighting).
