Gettin' the Band Back Together Broadway

$39.50-$249.50

The Tony Award-winning director of Urinetown returns to Broadway with Gettin' The Band Back Together, a hilarious new musical comedy that The New York Times calls, "A feel-good class act! A playful, irreverent, and genuinely funny musical."

He always wanted to be the next Bon Jovi, but Mitch Papadopoulos (Mitchell Jarvis, Rock of Ages) left those daydreams behind for a day job. When this big-shot banker is handed a pink slip on his 40th birthday, he's forced to move back in with his mom (five-time Golden Globe nominee Marilu Henner, "Taxi") in New Jersey.

A run-in with his former music rival leads to a threat of foreclosure on Mitch's family home, unless he can win The Battle of the Bands- a rematch over 25 years in the making. So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang, and sets out to win back his house, his pride- and maybe even the high school sweetheart he left behind- proving it's never too late to give your dreams one last shot.
