That's right theatre fans. One of this season's most highly anticipated shows has begun. That Championship Season which is set to begin previews tonight at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre is scheduled to open on March 6. The show which first premiered on Broadway in 1972 features an all-star cast. Here is the line-up.
Brian Cox,Jim Gaffigan,Chris Noth,Jason Patric,and Kiefer Sutherland. See I told you it was all-star didn't I? As of the now the show is scheduled to run thru May 29 only but if reviews are good I expect it to extend. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the show here is a brief synopsis about the play from a production source.
"On the anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a small-town Catholic high school basketball team gather with their coach to re-live their youthful glory. As the night progresses, the long buried grudges and secrets of the once-confident players surface, threatening not just their solidarity, but the meaning of their victory. With savage humor, That Championship Season probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs."
I for one can't wait to see this show. Expect this show to be a big contender come Tony time. Get your tickets to see That Championship Season on Broadway. Who knows? Maybe I'll see you there. Until next time.
