Robb (S.R.) Bindler's Classic Doc, "Hands on a Hardbody" Makes Stage Debut With An Eye Towards Broadway

Robb (S.R.) Bindler's Classic 1997 Documentary, Hands on a Hardbody, has been developed into a new, original musical, which debuted May 12th at La Jolla Playhouse in California. The play, produced by Robb and others, and developed by a stellar team, including Phish frontman Trey Anastastio, has been critically well-received thus far, in such publications as Variety (here), and the Los Angeles Times (here). 

If you have the opportunity to see it for yourself at La Jolla Playhouse (tickets can be purchased here), it is not to be missed!

And for those of us on the East Coast, Robb (S.R.) Bindler's Hands on a Hardbody, will be Broadway-bound in the not-so-distant future!

Congratulations to Robb Bindler and the rest of the cast and crew!
