After watching the award-winning 1997 S. R. Bindler documentary about the endurance contest in which entrants must keep one hand on the surface of a vehicle at all times in order to win a brand new pickup truck, librettist Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife) was inspired to begin work on a musical Hands on a Hardbody. With composer Trey Anastasio (famous for his work in jam band Phish), lyricist-composer Amanda Green (Bring It On: The Musical) and director Neil Pepe (A Behanding in Spokane) in tow, the new musical premieres at California's La Jolla Playhouse April 27-June 17. In a La Jolla-produced video, Wright, Anastasio, Green and Pepe share their passion for the Texas-set show. For more on the production, click here.
