Home runs, fly balls and devilishly good fun all meet at home plate in the Broadway musical comedy, DAMN YANKEES. Set during the 1950's in Washington D.C., the musical is a contemporary retelling of Faust.
Based on Wallop's novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant, the musical tells the story of a middle-aged baseball fanatic who trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team in the pennant race against The New York Yankees, only to realize the true worth of the life (and wife) he left behind.
Come early and picnic in the park grove. Box office opens at 5:30 PM. Bring your chair and set it up in the spot you choose. You can leave it there with the knowledge that no one will move it (ah! the honor system!). If you get your hand stamped, you can leave the theater and return later, before the show starts. This is a great family show! Bring the kids!
