Hands on a Hardbody
The 2013 Tony Award nominations have been announced, and the gongs will be handed out June 9. What is there to jeer or cheer about between now and then? The following is purely subjective.
I come not to bury Hands on a Hardbody but to praise it. Hands down, it’s the best new musical on Broadway since Once.
Last night, I saw the hilarious new musical Hands on a Hardbody, which follows 10 contestants competing to keep their hands on a truck from their local Nissan dealership. Set in Texas, the truck takes center stage literally, but also in each of the characters’ minds as the American Dream.
