"Hands on a Hardbody", the Broadway musical with music by Trey and Amanda Green, opens soon with previews beginning February 23rd and a "red carpet" Grand Opening on March 21st.
The show is at the Brook Atkinson Theatre near Times Square at 256 West 47th St., between Broadway and 8th Avenue.
"Hands on a Hardbody" is a musical, based on a 1997 documentary film of the same name about the individual stories of ten hard-luck Texans who participate in a "Survivor"-like radio station contest to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. Two songs from the show, which had an initial production last summer in LaJolla, CA, "Burn that Bridge" and "My Problem Right There", have already been performed by the Trey Anastasio Band and Phish in the past several years. "Burn that Bridge" had its Phish premier at the 12/31/10 New Year's Eve show.
There's more information on "Hands on a Hardbody" at their official website. As the opening nears, we hope to have more features and interviews on Phish.net about Trey and Amanda's collaboration in writing this musical.
