"HANDS ON A HARDBODY" OPENS ON BROADWAY SOON

There's more information on "Hands on a Hardbody" at their official website. As the opening nears, we hope to have more features and interviews on Phish.net about Trey and Amanda's collaboration in writing this musical.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster at this link. We're pleased to announce that the producers are making a special discount code available at deeply discounted prices, ranging from $79 in the Orchestra and Front Mezzanine to $65 in the Rear Mezzanine (this being a small Broadway theatre, we're told there's not a bad seat in the house).

To get the special fan discount offer (valid until April 6th), select the date you want to see the show on from the Ticketmaster main event page here, enter the discount code "FAN1HH" in the offer code box (as shown below), and then choose open seats from the interactive seat map.

Hands on a Hardbody fan discount code good through April 6th

Lee_Fordham Not sure how good the Broadway show will be, but if you can get your hands on the 1997 documentary, it's AMAZING. Humanity's quirky characters laid out in all their glory.

bellawhat Saw this while it was on its opening run at the La Jolla Playhouse. If you're into musicals, this one is fun, and you can definitely hear Trey's influence in the music.

Also not sure how this venue is set up, but at the La Jolla Playhouse we just hung around after the show and got to meet Trey :)

Enjoy!

Ocelot256 Burn that Bridge was at the 2010 NYE show, not the 2012 show.

Thanks, corrected. Putting together even a simple blog article with all the spelling, grammar and links correct takes more time than you think. Hopefully that's the biggest/only mistake I made!

Totally. I mean, storytelling through music, and Broadway in general, don't seem like things Trey would ever be caught dead doing, amirite?

MostlyHarmless I think it's a great collaboration, and it's encouraging when an artist wants to expand his or her scope.

Seriously, why can't Trey understand we want him to fit into a neat little box? How dare he fill his artistic needs in different ways. This is just like all the time Garcia wasted painting and playing in the Jerry Band. Listen up Trey. No TAB, no orchestras and no Broadway plays. Phish and only phish and when you do play with Phish you better play the songs I like in the set I want them played in. Is that too much to ask?

Seconded. Nothing against Trey doing musicals or whatever he wants to do. . .but he could have done something a little headier. This is Trey we're talking about here.

Babyrattlesnakes I'm pretty sure this will be an interesting musical, and I'm totally sure that Trey's contributions will be awesome. I'm also, however, totally sure that this ad BLOWS. My "heart" is just dandy without being "captured," thanks.

Yes, it most certainly is Keith Carradine:

pooper Well then.
Isn't this something.
The union of two different scenes - the trust-fund community-college-drop-out scene of 3.0 and the conglomeration of free-spirited Starbucks baristas and connoisseurs of all things tasteless that make up musical theater scene we see today. Two scenes which are morally corrupt and hopelessly depraved in their own ways.

This certainly will bring a twist into the world of broadway musicals. Never before have we been able to say, "I'm going to drop a hit of acid and see a musical." "I'm going to fire up some dabs and sit through 4 hours of a mind-numbing theatrical performance consisting of rednecks touching a truck." (I'm going to add here that yes, this musical is about touching a truck. I might be leaving out a few details, but my understanding is that is the gist of this entire production. Why? I don't know. But this musical is about touching a truck.)

And you might ask yourself, "What happened to all of our tweezers and stashes and what-have-you of the 90s that we missed so dearly?"

Well, dear phans. Now is the time to ask yourselves - when you find yourselves walking into the Brook Atkinson Theatre in March, hopped up on your goofballs and magic mushrooms, your dreadlocks hanging loose as you blather to those around you about the golden years of Phish - was it worth it?

I think not.

fluffhead108 Seeing this tomorrow night. Excited.

And amazingly, it is possible to see Phish related things without dropping acid.
