BRONX BOMBERS to Offer Yankees-Themed Dooney & Bourke Gift with Purchase
Producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo have announced that Bronx Bombers will offer an exclusive Yankees themed Dooney & Bourke gift with the purchase of a "Family 4-Pack" for performances in January 2014. With the purchase of four regularly priced tickets (in a single transaction) to any performance of Bronx Bombers between January 10 and January 30, ticket buyers will receive a voucher for a Yankees themed Dooney & Bourke wristlet, which can be redeemed at the merchandise stand in the lobby of Circle in the Square Theatre (West 50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue) during performance times. The new MLB line of Dooney & Bourke products are available only through Macy's and Bronx Bombers.
Bronx Bombers, a new American play written and directed by Eric Simonson, will begin performances on Broadway starting January 10, 2014 at Circle in the Square Theatre (West 50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue). Tickets are now on sale at Telecharge.com.
Peter Scolari, last seen on Broadway as Michael Daly in Lucky Guy will take on the role of America's icon Yogi Berra. He was the co-star of the Emmy Award-winning television series "Bosom Buddies" and "Newhart." Scolari can currently be seen on HBO's "Girls." Scolari's wife Tracy Shayne will take on the role of Carmen Berra. She returns to Broadway following performances as Roxie Hart in Chicago, Cosette in Les Miserables and multiple roles in A Chorus Line.
The cast also features Francois Battiste (Reggie Jackson), Chris Henry Coffey (Joe DiMaggio), Bill Dawes (Mickey Mantle), Christopher Jackson (Derek Jeter), Keith Nobbs (Billy Martin), John Wernke (Lou Gehrig) and C.J. Wilson (Babe Ruth).
Joining Kirmser and Ponturo as special producing partners are the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball, marking these organizations' first foray on Broadway.
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.
Bronx Bombers is the third work in a sports series for the stage conceived by producer Fran Kirmser. This is also the third work in the series where Tony Ponturo has brought major sports leagues to the theatre. Kirmser & Ponturo strive to build new original works and bring new patrons to experience the magic of the stage by combining the drama of sports and theater through Kirmser Ponturo Group. Lombardi and Magic/Bird were the first two productions of that vision. Bronx Bombers is the third production.
