With a story by Pulitzer Prize-winner Doug Wright and music co-written by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, Hands on a Hardbody makes its regional premiere at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati. Based on an award-winning documentary film, this gripping new musical centers on an endurance competition that challenges 10 strangers to see who can keep his or her hand on a new pickup truck the longest. The winner gets the truck -- and a piece of the American Dream. After debuting to ecstatic reviews on Broadway last year (and earning three Tony nods), a brand new, "fully loaded" production of Hands On A Hardbody rolls in Cincinnati, directed by D. Lynn Meyers.

Excellent production with a (mostly) strong cast. Only bummer--hopefully not ongoing--was sound mix: actor's mics were so low during 2nd act (two actually seemed to be turned off) that I missed most of the dialogue and lyrics. Very frustrating!

“With strong performances, solid direction, and excellent design, this musical is a must-see for Cincinnati audiences…The sleek, modern, and cool design concept is much more visually stunning than the original Broadway production.” —talkinbroadway.com (Cincinnati)
“A strong regional premiere…nicely staged.” —_Cincinnati Enquirer _
The production contains strong language and adult themes and may not be suitable for all audiences.
The Goodmans seem like a perfect family. The only problem is that sometimes Mom seems, well … a little too happy. Fresh from a remarkable Broadway run comes one of the most lauded musicals of the new century! With provocative lyrics and an electrifying score that includes more than 30 original songs, this thrilling, emotional powerhouse of a musical is a story about the stop/start life of a bipolar mother as she rides the sharp edge between coping and insanity.
