That's right theatre fans. Or should I say sport's fans. One of football's most decorated athlete's of all time is set to make his Broadway debut in 2016. Have you guessed who it is yet? No? I'll give you one more clue. The championship team he played for was the Tennessee Titans. Now do you know who it is? O.K. O.K. I won't hold you in suspense any longer.
It is none other than Ohio State University's Eddie George. He of course won the Heisman Trophy in 1995 and led the Tennessee Titans to the Super Bowl in 2000. Now before you start thinking this is some sort of publicity stunt it is not. Following his retirement in 2004, followed by a stint in commentary, he formed his own theatre company (Actors by George) in 2012.
Since that time he has starred in Matthew Lopez's The Whipping Man, as well as Suzan-Lori Parks' Topdog/Underdog, as well as countless other show's. The big question of course is, " Can he sing?" We are about to find out. Mr. George is scheduled to make his Broadway debut as lawyer Billy Flynn on January 11 and will play thru February 28. Tickets are now on sale so don't delay. Get your tickets to see Eddie George in Chicago on Broadway at the Ambassador Theatre. Until next time sport's fans.
