Gettin' the Band Back Together, now in previews at the Belasco Theatre, has just released some footage from the show, offering viewers a sneak peek at the new musical ahead of its official August 13 opening. Check out the footage below.
Gettin' the Band Back Together follows Mitch Papadopolous, who always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi. However, he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while, he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday, when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. When his high school archnemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands.
Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando and choreographed by Chris Bailey, Gettin' the Band Back Together has original music and lyrics by Mark Allen and a book by Ken Davenport and the Grundleshotz with additional material by Sarah Saltzberg.
