Bandstand New York Tickets
Bandstand New York TicketsBandstand opened on April 26, 2017, and it closed on Sept. 17, 2017. Although it had a short run, during that time, it had 24 previews and 166 performances in New York City. This is a dance musical that is set in 1945 in the United States as the military war veterans are returning to their homes. Private First Class Donny Novitski realizes that this is not the United States he remembers, however. He is also a singer and songwriter, so when he hears that NBC is going to hold a national competition to find the nation’s next great musical superstars, he finds a new purpose for his life. The show was the winner of the 2017 Chita Rivera Award for Outstanding Choreography in a Broadway Show, the 2017 Drama Desk award for Outstanding Choreography and the 2017 Tony Award for Best Choreography. This show touches on life after war for war veterans as well as PTSD.
Coming Home to a New AmericaThe New York Times described Bandstand as both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II. It is a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and viscerally. Time Out New York wrote that the show defies you not to be moved. Time Out also touched on the observation that this musical balances the themes of nostalgia and disillusion. While it is exciting that Donny and his friends are going to New York for a shot at Hollywood, they also must deal with life after the war and its effects, including depression, copious drinking and the memories of the horror of war.
