Bandstand a New Musical Original Broadway Cast Recording
Bandstand is a musical composed by Richard Oberacker with book and lyrics by Oberacker and Robert Taylor.
The musical tells the story of a mismatched 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 war, going all the way for a win in the contest seems like a dream that may break these musicians.

And Now Bandstand the Soundtrack
2017 original cast recording. Bandstand brings the swing-fuelled, against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage. When a national contest to find America’s next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer, and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power.
Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), starring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and featuring an explosive original score by Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation. The original Broadway cast recording is produced by Michael Croiter.
