Additional Info

Welcome to the 30th Reunion of the Class of '79. Everyone you ever loved, hated, had a crush on, or wanted to punch in the face will be there. They are just older, fattier and angrier. Old scores will be settled, old games will be replayed and new (or should we say old) love will be found. And they will all be singing and dancing to an amazing score by Van Zandt, Milmore & Nick DeGregorio including "I Hope They Know Me," "I Want to Bang Miss Blumquist," "(I'm in a) Garden State of Mind," and the show stopping "I'll Never Dance With You."
