Bo Bice, Alexander Gemignani and More Will Lead PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES, Opening April 8


Bo Bice, the singer best known for his appearances on AMERICAN IDOL, is set to make his Broadway debut in PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES, reports The New York Times today.

Bice, the second place finisher in the singing competition's fourth season behind Carrie Underwood (who's set to transition to a musical herself), will be joined by stage veterans Alexander Gemignani, Erik Hayden, Justin Hosek, Jane Pfitsch and Leenya Rideout. Performances are slated to begin March 19 at Circle in the Square Theater with an official opening night of April 8.

This new production of Pump Boys and Dinettes, John Doyle's visionary tribute to life by the roadside, takes place on Highway 57. Somewhere in America's heartland, between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina, stands a rest stop, for those who need a good rest. The four hard-working fellas at the gas station, Jim, Jackson, Eddie and L.M., have been known to do some auto repairs, but only when aided by ample quantities of time, great tunes and a few beers while they're at it.
