See Marilu Henner in Broadway's Gettin' the Band Back Together
The Taxi star plays Sharon Papadopoulos in this rock-infused musical comedy.
New production photos of Marilu Henner, who stars in Gettin' the Band Back Together, have been released ahead of the production's August 13 opening at the Belasco Theatre.
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.
