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.

“I’ll venture to say that you’ve never seen [King] in quite this altogether human light, as portrayed — dare I say wholly embodied — by Gavin Lawrence … it’s one of the best productions we’ll see here in Cincinnati this theater season.” —CityBeat
“Working in designer Brian C. Mehring’s spot-on re-creation of the real Lorraine Motel room, director D. Lynn Meyers stages this the way a composer might write an extended duet. The harmony between the two characters is rarely obvious, but it is always there.” —Cincinnati Enquirer
