Show Summary - Gettin' the Band Back Together

Gettin’ the Band Back Together is a new musical with a book by producer Ken Davenport, along with the improvisational group the Grundleshotz, as well as Sarah Saltzberg, in addition to music and lyrics by Mark Allen. The show is directed by John Rando (who won a Tony Award for Urinetown). The show premiered regionally at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey, which is fitting as the story is set in Sayreville, New Jersey. It centers on a 40 year-old, recently unemployed investment banker, who seeks to get his high school band back together as a means to prevent his mother’s house from entering foreclosure.

As it turns out, the real estate owner who is seeking the foreclosure is his high school foe, and he is equally motivated to save his mother’s house in order to win a competition against him.  Along with his old band Juggernaut, he enters the high-stakes Battle of the Bands, reconnects with his high school friends, saves his mother’s house, and goes head-to-head with his rival from his school days. The show has been reviewed as “playful,” “good-natured,” “mildly irreverent,” and “genuinely funny,” which knows how to strike a balance between “feel-good” and “touches of meanness.” With a feel-good score and a story that is just a little bit irreverent, this show could be a fun night in the theatre for family and friends alike. Gettin’ the Band Back Together has been called a “'rockin’ Valentine to the Garden State.”
