A witty romantic comedy about getting a second chance at first love, Gettin’ the Band Back Together centers around a New York City businessman who is fired on his fortieth birthday and returns to his hometown to move back in with his parents. This original musical was developed by veteran Broadway producer Ken Davenport along with the Grundleshotz, a group of performers and writers. After a warm reception at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, NJ, Gettin’ the Band Back Together finally made its way to Broadway in 2018.
Award winning producer and writer Ken Davenport has been involved in many successful Broadway shows, both originals and revivals. He’s been nominated for numerous awards, winning several, including the Tony Award for Best Musical (Kinky Boots, 2013), the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for Favorite Play Revival (Macbeth, 2013 and Godspell, 2012), and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical (Altar Boys, 2005).
