About Damn Yankees:
Faust meets professional baseball in the Broadway send up of love and the American pastime. Based on the novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards hits it out of the park!
Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of what he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.
Damn Yankees is a home run hit filled with unforgettable songs, fast-paced humor, and award winning Bob Fosse choreography.
