Dolly put Yonkers on the map, In The Heights gave you 96,000 reasons to love Washington Heights. Now Gettin' The Band Back Together, an original new American musical, will celebrate Sayreville. So when we were thinking about who should see the show first, in our final rehearsal before we start performances, we thought, who better than residents of Sayreville itself!"

Mitch Papadopolous always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi, but he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while he thought he had everything - the high paying job, the high-rise apartment - until his 40th birthday when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey.

And when his high school arch nemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can... by winning The Battle of the Bands. So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang, and sets out to win the battle... and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind... proving it's never too late to give your dreams one last shot.
