Constantine Maroulis & Marilu Henner to Lead Industry Readings of New Musical GETTIN' THE BAND BACK TOGETHER, 6/24
On Tuesday, June 24, Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages) and stage and screen icon Marilu Henner (The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Chicago) will headline private industry readings of the new Broadway-bound musical GETTIN' THE BAND BACK TOGETHER in midtown Manhattan.
Featuring music and lyrics by Mark Allen, book by Ken Davenport and The Grundleshotz, and additional material by Sarah Saltzberg, GETTIN' THE BAND BACK TOGETHER is a rockin' valentine to the Garden State, directed by Tony Award-winner John Rando (Urinetown). Hailed by The New York Times as "playful, good-natured and genuinely funny," the critically acclaimed new musical had its world-premiere production at George Street Playhouse last fall (September 24 - October 27, 2013). The original cast recording is now available on iTunes.

But when his arch nemesis from high school threatens to foreclose on his house unless he agrees to a re-match of their infamous battle of the bands, Mitch realizes he may have no choice.
The June 24 readings feature Natalie Venetia Belcon (Matilda, Avenue Q) and will reunite original members of the George Street Playhouse cast, including Heather Brave (Circle of Friends), Evan Daves (The Coast of Utopia), Michelle Duffy (Leap of
