Horns up and bellys sucked in, because Gettin' the Band Back Together proves it's never to late to rekindle your rock & roll spirit. This brand new Broadway musical comedy, written by Jack Davenport (Altar Boyz) and comedy troupe group Grundleshotz, plays out like School of Rock but with middle-aged, white collar workers instead the precocious kids. Its story follows former banker Mitch returning to his hometown and resurrecting his old high school band for a seriously high-stakes music competition.
Gettin' the Band Back Together originally debuted at the George Street Playhouse in 2013. John Rando (Urinetown) directs, while the snappy, riffy score come from Mark Allen. A charming, entertaining ride, this musical is rock star wish fulfilment at its absolute best!
Like many of us, Mitch once dreamed of being a rock star, but then life took over. Now he's in his forties and back living with his mom in Jersey after his Wall Street job hits the bricks. At a loose end, Mitch decides to round-up the members of his old high school band The Juggernaut. With a local Battle of the Bands looming, the band may be a way for Mitch to rediscover his mojo, and to maybe impress his old high school crush.
However, the competition becomes a whole lot more serious when local landowner Tygen, who is threatening to foreclose Mitch's mom's house, throws his hat in the ring. The only way for Mitch stop him is to defeat up on the stage!
