What Is Gettin' the Band Back Together?
The stars of the new Broadway musical discuss what it takes to build a show through improvisation.
Gettin' the Band Back Together is not your traditional musical. The show, about a 40-year-old man who reunites with his high school band, has been in development for years, starting with a series of improv sessions led by book writer and producer Ken Davenport. Now, it's ready for the big time, and with a cast led by Mitchell Jarvis, Kelli Barrett, and Marilu Henner, it's about to take the stage at the Belasco Theatre.
