BREAKDOWN


Set in 1945, “BANDSTAND” tells the story of a mismatched swing band of military veterans who join together to compete in a national radio contest in New York City with a prize that will guarantee instant stardom to the winners. But with complicated relationships, the demands of the competition and the challenging after-effects of the War that each vet band member carries, going all the way for a win in the contest seems like a dream that may break them more than give them their big break. The score is strongly influenced by authentic 1940’s swing music, much of which is played onstage by the characters who make up the band. The show races towards a “live on air” finale that has an emotionally charged and surprise twist ending that requires every ounce of talent, stamina and raw nerve that these musicians possess.
