The other night I took a friend—a die-hard Yankee fan—to see Bronx Bombers, the new Broadway play about baseball’s most famous franchise.
Producer Fran Kirmser steps up to home plate when her latest Broadway production, Bronx Bombers, begins previews on Jan. 10 for a Feb. 6 opening night at the Circle in the Square Theatre. The play by Eric Simonson celebrates a century of New York Yankees greatness, with a cast of characters second to none. Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Reggie Jackson, Billy Martin, Derek Jeter—generations of the Yankee family are onstage. Sports on Broadway? It’s a home run, says Kirmser.
