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
