Staff Report


Damn Yankees

March 30-April 2 and April 6-8, 2017

Fritsche Theatre at Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St., Westerville

Words and Music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross; Book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop; Directed by Lenny Leibowitz; Music Direction by Lori Kay Harvey; Choreography by Stella Hiatt Kane; Co-produced by the Department of Music

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd agrees to run the bases with Devil so that his favorite team, the Washington Senators, have the chance to win the pennant against the dreaded New York Yankees. Amidst his transformation to star-slugger Joe Hardy, he realizes the true worth of the life he’s left behind and has to find a way to outsmart his fiery adversary before his soul is lost for eternity. The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot feature songs “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets,” “(You Gotta Have) Heart” and many more home-run hits!
