Broadway's Bandstand to Be Screened in Movie Theaters Across the Country
Laura Osnes and Corey Cott's Broadway performances are headed to the screen.
On June 25 and 28, the Broadway musical Bandstand will be screened in movie theaters nationwide. The screening is produced by Fathom Events.
The 2017 musical earned Andy Blankenbuehler a Tony Award for his choreography. Also directed by Blankenbuehler, Bandstand was written by Richard Oberacker and Rob Taylor. The story follows 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.
The Broadway cast was led by Corey Cott and Laura Osnes, joined by Beth Leavel, Joey Pero, Joe Carroll, Brandon James Ellis, James Nathan Hopkins, and Geoff Packard. The creative team included Paloma Young (costumes), Nevin Steinberg (sound), David Korins (set), and Jeff Croiter (lighting).
Bandstand ran at the Paper Mill Playhouse before transferring to Broadway in March 2017.
