Batter up! Just in time for baseball season comes the muscular musical comedy about a Red Sox super-fan who is transformed into a star slugger after he makes a deal with the devil — and his sexy associate, Lola. Goodspeed re-imagines a Broadway classic that swings for the fences, no matter which team you root for. In the game of love and baseball, you gotta have “Heart” — but watch out for “Whatever Lola Wants.”
Damn Yankees has words and music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop. This big league musical is based on the novel “The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant” by Douglass Wallop and features a book adaptation for the Red Sox Version by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro.
Damn Yankees will run April 11 through June 21 at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut
