The Band Wagon

Closed November 16, 2014

The classic MGM comedy comes to the stage for a strictly limited run starring Brain Stokes Mitchell, Laura Osnes and Roger Rees!

Why See The Band Wagon?

Based on the hit movie!

A fading star feels it's time to give Broadway a go, only to fall mercy to a highly pretentious British director who wants his own taste of the limelight and to turn their light rom-com into a serious production of Faust. With a re-worked book by Douglas Carter Beane, this new production promises to live up to the movie's most famous song; 'That's Entertainment'!

Originally starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse, this stylish production will be a similar feast for the eyes, with incredible dance, with music by Arthur Schwartz and lyrics by Howard Dietz. Tony award winner Brain Stokes Mitchell will take the lead of Tony, alongside the lovely Laura Osnes as Gabrielle and brilliant Roger Rees as Jeffrey, and will have us all toe-tapping along!
