Hands on a Hardbody

book by Doug Wright
music by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green
lyrics by Amanda Green

directed by Mark A. Rhea and Elena Velasco
music directed by Jake Null
choreographed by Elena Velasco


For 10 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.

A musical inspired by the true events of the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name by S.R. Bindler, produced by Kevin Morris and Bindler.

“You can hear the sound of America singing in this daring new musical.” – The New York Times
