The Band Wagon

Hop on The Band Wagon for fun and entertainment! Co-written by Betty Comden (Singin’ in the Rain) and starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse, it has one of the most iconic songs in musical history with “That’s Entertainment!”. Toby (Astaire) is looking to mount a Broadway comeback, but a hostile co-star (Charisse) and the director’s re-visioning of the lighthearted play, have Toby heading for the door.  Don’t worry, this is show biz and we have a feeling there will be a happy ending!
