Box Office for Broadway's BRONX BOMBERS Opens Tomorrow
Producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo announce that the Bronx Bombers box office will open tomorrow, Friday, December 13 at 10:00AM at Circle in the Square Theatre (West 50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue). The first fifty patrons at the Bronx Bombers box office on opening day will receive a New York Yankees New Era adjustable hat with their purchase.
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. 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 perform the role of Carmen Berra, returning to Broadway following performances as Roxie Hart in Chicago, Christine in The Phantom of The Opera and Cosette in Les Miserables.
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.
