Bring Back The SWing
Last seen lighting up Broadway in 2017, and winning a Tony in the process, Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor's Bandstand transports you back to post-WWII America where returning soldier Donny Novitski is struggling to join the celebrations in his small Ohio town. When he decides to revisit his love of music and start a swing band with other vets he discovers that he's not the only one searching for a post-war purpose.
Full of swinging tunes and glorious choreography, this all-dancing, all-singing emotional rollercoaster will leave you with joy in your heart and a hop in your step.
What is the story?
Donny Novitski is back from the war and unsure what the future holds. His nights are restless, with visions of the battlefield running through his mind, but perhaps music holds the key to his recovery. A once-promising jazz musician, Danny's interest is peaked by a national song competition on the radio, with the winning band bagging an appearance in an MGM movie! Donny sets about putting together a band of fellow veterans, determined that their terrible past experiences shouldn't hold them back from claiming a better future.
With the band improving, Donny's luck seems to have hit an even bigger break when he finds the beautiful and talented widow Julia to be their singer. A romance begins to blossom between the two, yet the band are heading into choppy waters. Their collective pasts can't be so easily forgotten, and the tension caused by all their underlying mental stresses is threatening to break the band apart. As the competition looms closer, they must rediscover their unity if they stand a shot at glory.
