    Bo Bice –remember him!?- has signed with newly-formed Altar Agency and has accepted the upcoming lead role in the revival of the Broadway musical Pump Boys and Dinettes, which was big in the '80s. The production will be held at the Circle in the Square Theater with preview performances to commence March 19, 2013. The official open is April 8.

    The original production opened off-Broadway in 1981 and moved to Broadway in February 1982, completing 573 performances over 16 months. The musical is a tribute to rural American life centered around a roadside restaurant and filling station on Highway 57 in North Carolina. Tony winner John Doyle is also set to direct the Pump Boys revival, where the cast ensemble doubles as the show's band. It received both Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations for Best Musical.

    Bice, a runner-up finalist to Carrie Underwood on American Idol's fourth season, has released three studio albums. He has also recorded and performed with Carlos Santana, Richie Sambora, Willie Nelson, Chad Kroeger and Lynyrd Skynyrd, amongst others, and is now expanding his already eclectic repertoire to include Broadway.

    There's nada Bo can't do! Bo knows!
