Hands on Hardbody to Open on Broadway in March

Hands on Hardbody, the new musical about a bunch of people who are given an endurance challenge to win a pickup truck, will begin performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on February 23, 2013 with an opening of March 21. With a book by Doug Wright, lyrics by Amanda Green, and music by Trey Anastasio, Hands on Hardbody will be directed by Neil Pepe with musical staging by Sergio Trujillo. Inspired by the 1997 documentary of the same name, the musical debuted at La Jolla Playhouse with the same cast that will be a part of the Broadway production. I'm thinking this will be the sleeper hit of the 2012-2013 Broadway season.
