Show Description

Mitch Papadopolous (Mitchell Jarvis) always dreamed of being the next Bon Jovi, but he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while he thought he had everything – the high paying job, the high-rise apartment – until his 40th birthday when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his Mom (Marilu Henner) in Sayreville, New Jersey.

And when his high school arch nemesis (with a 20-year- old grudge and a tangerine spray tan) threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can… by winning The Battle of the Bands.

So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang and sets out to win the battle… and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind… proving it’s never too late to give your dreams one last shot.

Middle-age urges to re-live old garage band pipe dreams are typically best kept to dank basements and sound-proofed garages, and Broadway’s Gettin’ The Band Back Together doesn’t exactly prove otherwise. Still, the playful musical is more infectious than you might expect. Be warned, though: enjoyment of Gettin’ The Band Back Together will be in direct proportion to a tolerance for not-so-young guys making guitar faces and devil horn hand gestures for two and a half hours.

Although simplistic by design, the script is funny without being hilarious, grooving along mainly on its many goofy throwaway lines. One nonsensical exchange reveals that Sharon once had a thing with Aerosmith’s renowned lead guitarist, Joe Perry, and was the inspiration for “Back in the Saddle.” “Oh, grow up,” Sharon scolds her scandalized son. “So, your mom was into S&M — so what?”

How dopey is Gettin’ the Band Back Together? Very dopey.Does it have a charm? It has a charm. If you’re from New Jersey, you might like it.
Certainly the audience I sat among loved every specific reference to shops, places, cafés, and the jokey refrain of its setting, Sayreville, in “Western Eastern Central Middlesex County.”This is a show, directed with a loopy Labrador’s energy by John Rando, that sells itself shamelessly to its intended audience
