Hands on a Hardbody is coming to Broadway on March 21, and we’re giving away a pair of tickets for a performance during previews (Feb 23 – Mar 21)

Show details:

TEN Contestants.
FOUR Days.
ONE Truck.
A new musical about holding onto a dream…and not letting go.

For ten hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, they’ll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest that is HANDS ON A HARDBODY only one winner can drive away with the American Dream.

Inspired by true events, this new musical features a book by DOUG WRIGHT (Pulitzer Prize winner, I Am My Own Wife), lyrics by AMANDA GREEN (Bring It On: The Musical), and music by Trey Anastasio (Phish) and Amanda Green. Directed by Neil Pepe (Speed-The-Plow) with musical staging by SERGIO TRUJILLO (Jersey Boys, Memphis), it is based on the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name by S.R. Bindler, produced by KEVIN MORRIS and Bindler.

Here’s how to win tickets:

The characters in Hands on a Hardbody have to keep their hands on a pickup truck. What prize would it take for you to enter a competition like that? Tell us in the comment section below. We’ll pick a winner on Friday (2/15.)
