A terrific Bandstand on Broadway

What a rousing good time that has you crying one moment and cheering wildly the next. The new American Musical Bandstand is a terrific show.  It helps that I like swing music and a whopping good story.

The performances of the entire cast, especially Laura Osnes, Corey Cott and Beth Leavel, are first rate.  The energy and choreography is fantastic.  And I have a new theme song – “Everything Happens” in the second act.

All that said, I am afraid this will not be around so long.  With limited Tony nominations – and not for Best Musical- it may not be able to stand out enough at the box office.  Especially in a season where we have 13 new musical on Broadway – and some of those outstanding and flashier.

So see it if you get the chance.  Before it flies away.  I’m confident you will enjoy it as much as I did.
