DAMN YANKEES MEET AT THE VAN WEZEL HOME PLATE ON JAN. 25

Sarasota, FL: Faust, fly balls, and devilishly good fun all meet at the home plate of the 7 Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical DAMN YANKEES, at the Van Wezel on Wed. Jan 25, 2012 @ 8 PM.

"Six months out of every year, when we cook for them it never pays; Instead of praising our goulash, they're appraising the plays of Willie Mays!"

So sings the wife of a1950’s baseball fanatic who trades his sole to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team in the pennant race against The New York Yankees. He leaves her and the goulash behind and as young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team. The catch? Joe realizes the true worth of the life (and wife) he's left at home. With the help of a handy escape clause and a guilt-ridden temptress named Lola, Joe outsmarts the Devil, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series!

Filled with hit songs like “Whatever Lola Wants,” “You Gotta Have Heart”, and “A Little Brains, A Little Talent,” DAMN YANKEES hit 7 Tony Award winning home runs! Here is the Musical Comedy favorite, written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (of “The Pajama Game” fame), The New York Times calls, “…a triumph! Broadway showbiz at its fast-paced, skillful best!”


Ticket prices range from $30-$60. For more information and to buy tickets, contact the Van Wezel Box office at (941) 953-3368 or log onto www.vanwezel.org Sponsored by Wilde Lexus of Sarasota and ABC 7
