NEW YORK, NY – A new and rather special musical, “Bandstand,” just opened at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on 44th Street in Manhattan. It’s an uplifting work about soldiers returning home after World War II. It’s a show that is filled with music and dance but never depreciates the challenges facing veterans returning from war. Indeed, it’s just the opposite. This is a work that honors all veterans, and its d it balances traditional music theater with a topic rarely addressed by and it’s accomplished with pandering.
