Broadway On Demand will stream the filmed version of the Broadway musical Bandstand to celebrate Memorial Day. The film will be available May 28-31 for $6.99, with a 24-hour viewing period per purchase.
Set in the smoke-filled, swing-fueled night clubs of 1945, Bandstand finds singer-songwriter Private First Class Donny Novitski as he attempts to rebuild his life after returning home from the battlefield. When NBC announces a national music competition, Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow musician-veterans, and together they form a group unlike any the nation has ever seen. Written by Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor, the production is directed and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler.
