Let me just first start off by saying that I am a huge Mets fan. In fact even though I'm a loyal Knicks fan too I've actually been to more Mets games than Knicks games. Maybe that's because Mets tickets are a lot cheaper. Now we all know that New York is a Yankees town. Always has been and probably always will be. Which brings me to the reason for today's blog. Bronx Bombers, which opened to rave reviews Off-Broadway at Primary Stages is set to move uptown where it will begin previews at the Circle in the Square Theatre on January 10, 2014. Opening night is scheduled for February 6. Now for those of you out there who might want to see the show here is a brief synopsis about Bronx Bombers from the play's website.
Ruth. Berra. Mantle. DiMaggio. Gehrig. Jeter. The New York Yankees have never had a shortage of star players… or controversy. Bronx Bombers is a new American play from the team behind Broadway's Lombardi that follows beloved icon Yogi Berra and his wife Carmen through a century of the team's trials and triumphs, bringing generations of Yankee greats together on one stage. As it celebrates and explores the timeless legacy of baseball's most iconic team, Bronx Bombers takes a fascinating look at how and why the Yankees have remained so undeniably great... and so powerfully inspirational.
Now while I may be a Mets fan at heart I have to admit that I might just have to check this one out. Even though I did not get the chance to see Lombardi I did see the author's last show Magic/Bird. Yes I know that it was a flop. Didn't mean I didn't enjoy myself. And after all isn't that what theatre is all about anyway? Get your tickets to see Bronx Bombers at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Who knows? I might just see you there. Until next time baseball fans.
