Based on the 1953 MGM film, The Band Wagon is the classic showbiz tale of a
washed-up Hollywood star (Tony Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell) who
attempts to make a comeback by doing a Broadway show, and encounters an assortment of colorful characters: a British director who is a genius but has no business directing a musical, a leading lady who's never done a show before, and a composer and a lyricist who are at each other’s throats. All things that could never happen in the New York theater today.
The production stars Brian Stoke Mitchell as a washed up Hollywood actor hoping to make a comeback on Broadway, Laura Osnes as his leading lady, Tony Sheldon as the director and Michael McKean & Tracey Ullman as the show’s composer and lyricist.
