Thank you so much for tickets! My wife and I (both active duty) absolutely loved taking a night off and attending the performance. She is an avid musical lover and this play warmed her heart. Thank you!
Thank you to the National Theater for the tickets for my wife and I to attend "Bandstand", which proved to be a thoughtful and compassionate treatment of PTSD among combat veterans. We never had the opportunity to attend the National Theater in the past and foud it to be a magnificent venue for Broadway productions. Both the scripting and the music showed a level of maturity and insight that I was impressed by. The key song in the work was met by a prolonged standing ovation mid-show that originated and ended in the veteran's seating in the Mezzanine, which visibly impacted the performers. A wonderful night thanks to the National Theater and to Vettix and a moving tribute to our brothers and sisters who bear their scars inside.

Bandstand at the National Theater was fantastic! What a meaningful show to watch with so many veterans and military families in the audience. Thank you, National Theater and Vettix for this opportunity!
Thank you National Theatre and VetTix. The show was spectacular. Everything about the production — singing, storytelling, choreography and the cast — blew us away. It was an added bonus to be there for opening night with all of the TAPS members and so many fellow veterans also in the audience. What a night.
What a wonderful, entertaining and moving experience! Bandstand was filled with outstanding singing, music, and choreography as well as a sobering and patriotic storyline. Thank you to Vettix and its generous sponsors for this tremendous opportunity!
My daughter and I had an amazing evening. This was her first Broadway show and she was blown away by how incredibly fun the show was and she learned a great deal of what it was like for veterans coming home from war. It was a great experience and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to share this with my daughter. Thank you.
Thank you National Theatre for the 2 tickets to Bandstand. It was a fantastic performance and we were very pleased when the cast thanked those that are presently active duty military, veterans and/or family members of the military at the end of the show. That was a very memorable moment that will never be forgotten!
Thanks you to the National Theatre for the tickets to Bandstand. My wife and i enjoyed the evening. We especially appreciated the recognizing of the Veterans and their families at the end of the performance.
Thank you so much to VetTix and the National Theatre for the amazing opportunity to see and heard an emotional and uplifting musical. The music, the acting, the choreography, all of it required the viewer to be in the audience to fully appreciate the story. The cast's closing statements and thanks to current and past military members showcased their reverence towards that community. Thank you again and I look forward to seeing more great performances at the National Theatre.
My wife and I had a wonderful time last night at the theater watching Bandstand. Everything about the production, the songs, costumes and especially the dancing was amazing. We loved the story. As a veteran I found myself relating to the characters even though it was a different time. We will look back on the date very fondly. Thank you for your generosity.
