Damn Yankees

DAMN YANKEES
WORDS AND MUSIC BY RICHARD ADLER AND JERRY ROSS
BOOK BY GEORGE ABBOTT AND DOUGLASS WALLOP
Based on the novel by Douglass Wallop “The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant”

July 28 - August 7, 2016
Damn Yankees is a classic morality play within the framework of America’s favorite pastime – baseball! Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead the hapless Washington Senators to victory in the pennant race over the New York Yankees, only to realize the true worth of the life he has left behind. A dance extravaganza, Damn Yankees features favorite songs like “Heart,” and “Whatever Lola Wants.” The Tony Award-winning classic American musical Damn Yankees is a home-run hit featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. Rated PG
