David Finkle: First Nighter: Soft ...Hardbody, Happy Happy Birthday and It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Not Too Good
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Hands on a Hardbody follows -- with music -- a marathon where the contestant who keeps at least one hand on a truck the longest gets to drive the shiny new vehicle home. The tuner-loving pal I took, being heartily dismayed by the enterprise, joked that the enterprise should be renamed They Shoot Chevys, Don't They? If only librettist Doug Wright, lyricist Amanda Green and composers Green and Trey Anastasio had that kind of, uh, hands-on wit to spread around, they might had something at the Brooks Atkinson with their songing-up of an actual Longview, Texas incident as covered in the S. R. Bindler film . But although Wright has shown his skill on offerings like Quills. I Am My Own Wife and the book to Grey Gardens, although Green has written a clever song now and again as has Phish founder Anastasio, the trio don't come up with much of anything here in the transfer from the La Jolla Playhouse where it was commissioned and originally directed by Benjamin Millepied ( ...

'Hands on a Hardbody:' It’s Not What You Think
La Jolla - almost 5 years
From the title of this La Jolla Playhouse musical, you might imagine one very sexy piece of theater. But the "hardbody" in question is actually a truck. And the hands all over it belong to contestants in a bid to win the vehicle by hanging on for as long as possible; the pickup goes to the last one standing. It was a real event, an actual endurance contest, staged at a Nissan dealership in Longview, Texas in 1995, and detailed in a 1997 documentary, from which the provocative title is taken. “I saw the film years ago, and I was absolutely gob-smacked,” says playwright Doug Wright, who was commissioned to write the stage version of Hands on a Hardbody for the La Jolla Playhouse. We talked during a Sneak Peek for the press last week, which included a few songs from the new musical. “I grew up about 60 miles from Longview,” the warm, affable Wright says, with no trace of a twang (he attended Yale and NYU). “I thought the documentary would be a kitschy piece of Americana at first, ...
