Testing My Twin: Bandstand Edition

Two years ago today, we watched Bandstand on Broadway. It is one of our favorite musicals and has played a key role in furthering our interest in musical theatre. However, Bandstand is Ashley’s all-time favorite musical, so her knowledge of the show is more extensive. She was curious about how well Amanda knew the show. So, in honor of our Bandstand-iversary, Ashley quizzed Amanda on how well she knows Bandstand.
