Amanda Green and the Cast of Hands on a Hardbody to Perform in New York Tonight
Amanda Green and Friends will celebrate the release of Hands on a Hardbody‘s original Broadway cast recording at New York’s Birdland this evening. According to Playbill, Hands on a Hardbody cast members Keith Carradine, Allison Case, Jacob Ming-Trent, Janet Krupin, Jim Newman, Kathleen Monteleone and William Youmans are among the performers who will join Green during her performance. The show will also feature appearances by members of the original Broadway Pit Hardbody Pit Crew, including musical director Matt Gallagher (piano), Skip Krevens (pedal steel), Shannon Ford (drums) and Skip Ward (bass).
Green wrote the score for Hands on a Hardbody with Trey Anastasio. Though there is no word on whether or not the Phish guitarist will perform with Green and the cast this evening, he has joined her at Birdland on two other occasions. The play’s official cast recording was released in late August.
