BANDSTAND'S Hopkins & Pero Join BANDSTAND SINGS THE BIG BAND at Feinstein's/54 Below
For one night only, 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
Audiences can expect to hear such songs as "The Best Is Yet To Come," "A Fine Romance," "Mack the Knife," and many more in this tribute to the songs that defined the greatest generation.
James Nathan Hopkins, Joey Pero, and Matt Cusak are joining the previously announced Mary Callanan, Patrick Connaghan, Andrea Dotto, Brandon J. 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.
