The new musical Bandstand opened last night April 26 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on West 45 Street. The show stars Laura Osnes and Corey Cott with direction and choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler. Bandstand is written by Richard Oberacker (music) with book and lyrics by Robert Taylor and Richard Oberacker.
Attending guests included: Raul Esparza, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Tommy Tune, Bernadette Peters, Stephanie Styles, Brandon Uranowitz, Santino Fontana and many more!
Set in 1945, post World War II, Bandstand is all new swing music and a story about veterans returning home dealing with their traumas but finding solace in their music as they come together for a common purpose. It’s hi-energy swing and tapping. It’s also a love story.
On the red carpet for Theater Pizzazz was Mark Ryan (MR) Anderson!
