Hold Onto a Dream Musical to Hit NYC This Spring: “Hands On A Hardbody”

0

A classic new American musical will be hitting Broadway this spring…a musical about holding onto a dream and simply not letting go.  As New Yorkers, we should all be able to connect to this dream, because if not, we wouldn’t still be living here, right?

 

We wanted to be the first to tell you about the show that will no doubt be up for a Tony in 2013 (we’re only speculating here, but have a good feeling!)  The show is “Hands On A Hard Body“, and the plot goes a little something like this:

“TEN Contestants.  FOUR Days.  ONE Truck.  For ten hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, they’ll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest that is HANDS ON A HARDBODY only one winner can drive away with the American Dream.  

Inspired by true events, this new musical features a book by Doug Wright (Pulitzer Prize winner, I Am My Own Wife), lyrics by Amanda Green (Bring It On: The Musical), and music by Trey Anastasio (Phish) and Amanda Green. Directed by Neil Pepe (Speed-The-Plow) with musical staging by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis), it is based on the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name by S.R. Bindler, produced by Kevin Morris and Bindler.”
