Cast of BANDSTAND to Get Nostalgic at Feinstein's/54 Below

On Sunday, August 6th, at 7pm & 9:30pm, cast members of Broadway's Tony Award winning musical Bandstand will take Feinstein's/54 Below's audiences on a trip down memory lane to the swinging sounds of the 1940s with Bandstand SINGS THE BIG BAND.

BANDSTAND SINGS THE BIG BAND will be a nostalgic look back to the melodies and memories that made up America in the 1940s. Audiences can expect to hear such songs as "As Time Goes By," "I'll Be Seeing You," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and many more in this tribute to the songs that defined the greatest generation.

Cast members scheduled to appear in the concert are: Mary Callanan, Patrick Connaghan, Andrea Dotto, Brandon Ellis, Andrew Leggieri, Geoff Packard, and Keven Quillon. More cast members will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

Producer Robert W Schneider said, "Bandstand's message of resilience in the face of adversity and the power of music to heal one's wounds is a resonant reminder of our own humanity. I am honored that the actors who bring Bandstand to life every night will now celebrate the melodies and compositions that inspired their show's creators.

Set in the smoke filled, swing fueled night clubs of 1945, Bandstand brings the against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow WWII veterans to the stage.

Bandstand's music is by Richard Oberacker and the book and lyrics are by Mr. Oberacker and Robert Taylor. Andy Blankenbuehler serves as director and choreographer.

Bandstand stars Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes (Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella) and Corey Cott (Gigi) featuring Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Alex Bender (Broadway debut), Joe Carroll (Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella), Brandon J. Ellis (Once), James Nathan Hopkins (What's It All About: Bacharach Reimagined), and Geoff Packard (Matilda).

The Bandstand ensemble features Mary Callanan (Mamma Mia!), Max Clayton (Something Rotten!), Patrick Connaghan (Broadway debut), Matt Cusack (One Man Two Guvnors), Andrea Dotto (Broadway debut), Marc A. Heitzman (Broadway debut), Ryan Kasprzak (Broadway debut), Andrew Leggieri (Broadway debut), Erica Mansfield (Finding Neverland), Morgan Marcell (Hamilton), Drew McVety (The Front Page), Kevyn Morrow (The Color Purple), Jessica Lea Patty (Evita), Becca Petersen (Broadway debut) , Keven Quillon (Shrek), Jonathan Shew (Broadway debut), Ryan VanDenBoom (Something Rotten!), Jaime Verazin (Finding Neverland), Mindy Wallace (An American in Paris) and Kevin Worley (On the Town).
