Bice to make Broadway debut in ‘Pump Boys & Dinettes’ March 2013
Nashville, Tenn. (December 18, 2012) – Bo Bice, Sugar
Money Records artist, signs with newly-formed Altar Agency and
announces the upcoming lead role in the revival of the 1980’s Broadway
musical ‘Pump Boys and Dinettes’. The production will be held
at the Circle in the Square Theater with preview performances to
commence March 19, 2013 with an official open April 8th.
The original production opened off-Broadway in 1981 and moved to
Broadway in February 1982, completing 573 performances over 16 months.
The musical is a tribute to rural American life centered around a
roadside restaurant and filling station on Highway 57 in North
Carolina. Tony winner John Doyle (for “Sweeny Todd”, Director) is also
set to direct the ‘Pump Boys’ revival, where the cast ensemble doubles
as the show’s band. It received both Tony and Drama Desk Award
nominations for Best Musical.
Bice, a runner-up finalist to Carrie Underwood on American Idol’s fourth
season, has released three studio albums. He has also recorded and
performed with Carlos Santana, Ritchie Sambora, Willie Nelson, Chad
Kroeger and Lynyrd Skynyrd, amongst others, and is now expanding his
already eclectic repertoire to include Broadway.
“Altar Agency is excited to welcome Bo Bice to their roster,” says
General Manager D. Scott Miller. “We are truly excited with all that is
to come in 2013”.
