The musical comedy follows 40-year-old out-of-work banker Mitch (Jarvis), who moves back in with his mother (Henner) and decides to reunite his old high school band, Juggernaut.

"If you don't like the show, Marilu Henner will personally give you your money back," Jarvis promises in the teaser.

The principal cast also features Jay Klaitz (Lend Me a Tenor, High Fidelity), Manu Narayan (Bombay Dreams), Paul Whitty (Once, The Full Monty), and Sawyer Nunes (Matilda, Finding Neverland), who play Juggernaut band members; Brandon Williams (Blood Brothers) as Tygen, Mitch's high school arch nemesis; Tamika Lawrence (Come From Away, Beautiful) as police officer Roxy; Kelli Barrett (Doctor Zhivago), Becca Kötte (Las Vegas company of Rock of Ages), Garth Kravits (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Noa Solorio (regional Mary Poppins).

The ensemble includes Ryan Duncan, J. Elaine Marcos, Rob Marnell, Jasmin Richardson, and Tad Wilson.

Gettin’ the Band Back Together features a book by Ken Davenport (who also produces) and the performance group Grundleshotz, who helped develop the show through a series of improv rehearsals. Mark Allen penned the score, and Sarah Saltzberg (a member of Grundleshotz) provided additional material. The musical received its world premiere in 2013 at George Street Playhouse, also directed by Rando.
