Damn Yankees – One Night Only – New York, NY
Roundabout Theatre Company presents a Benefit Concert Reading of Damn Yankees starring Whoopi Goldberg as Applegate and Maggie Gyllenhaal as Lola. Would you do ANYTHING to help your favorite baseball team win the pennant? In the Faustian baseball musical, Damn Yankees, Joe Boyd sells his soul to the devil to be the home run hitter that will guide his favorite team, the Washington Senators, to a win against those “damn Yankees.” Featuring the classical musical theatre standards, “Heart,” “Two Lost Souls” and “Whatever Lola Wants”, follow Joe in his quest to save his team…and his soul.
Damn Yankees will be directed by Roundabout’s Associate Artist Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes).
Benefit Underwriters: Roxanne and Scott Bok, Michael T. Cohen, Colliers International NY LLC, Kiendl and John Gordon, Tom and Kitty Patterson Kempner, Diane and Tom Tuft.
