Last 'Hands On A Hardbody Show' To Be Played on April 13th

Last Hand on a Hardbody has enjoyed – or should we say endured – a mixed run on Broadway. It confused the critics, who offered mixed reviews, and failed to secure a New York audience. And so the musical, based on the 1997 documentary by S.R. Bindler, will wrap things up on April 13th.

Despite boasting a host of award winners amongst its cast and crew, including Tony Award-winning scenic designer Christine Jones (American Idiot), Tony Award-winning costume designer Susan Hilferty (Wicked), Tony Award-winning lighting designer Kevin Adams (Spring Awakening), and Tony Award-winning sound designer Steve Canyon Kennedy (Jersey Boys), Last Hang on a Hardbody just never caught on in the Big Apple. "This scrappy, sincere new musical brings a fresh, handmade feeling to Broadway, which mostly traffics in the machine tooled," wrote Charles Isherwood in The New York Times. "Burrowing into the troubled hearts of its characters, it draws a cleareyed portrait of an America that's a far cry from the fantasyland of most commercial musicals."

Hardbody opened on Broadway March 21 after a try-out run last year at La Jolla Playhouse in California. It will have played 28 previews and 28 regular shows by the time it comes to an end. If you want to see what the fuss is all about, tickets for Hands on a Hardbody range from $55-$155 and are still available. Reports suggest that this show may still have life on the road yet, though, so this isn’t your last chance.
