In honor of the Broadway opening of Bandstand, we asked some of the cast about their favorite moments during the show's creation. First, we hear from Ryan Kasprzak, who makes his Broadway debut in the show.
"The best part of the Bandstand process is spending everyday attempting to dance like Andy Blankenbeuhler. At 47, he is still the best dancer in the room and carries a quantity of swagger well beyond the legal Broadway limit. Trying to keep up with him is the most joyful kind of exhaustion. And pulling on a fedora with a band at your back and a pocketful of Blankensteps is the best thing a dancer could wish for."
Hear about the creation of Bandstand from Ryan's cast mate Jessica Lea Patty in our Rehearsal Reports series.
