Little Radical Theatrics to Present DAMN YANKEES, 7/18-20
Little Radical Theatrics, Inc.presents its summer production of DAMN YANKEES. Directed by Michael J Mirra, choreographed by Rosalie Burke and musical direction by Heather Edwards
Damn Yankees, a sporting twist on the Faust legend, tells the story of Joe Boyd, a middle-aged baseball fanatic, who loves the Washington Senators a little too much. When a devilish deal-maker offers the chance to beat the "damn Yankees" in return for Joe's soul, the perpetually frustrated Joe takes it. Transformed into Joe Hardy, a 22-year-old baseball sensation who will finally lead his team to victory over the juggernaut that is (or was) the New York Yankees, along the way, gets seduced by the Devil's sexy assistant, Lola. As the Senators' stats soar, Joe realizes the true worth of the beloved wife (and life) he's left behind, and looks for a loophole. Little Radical Theatrics continues its mission to re-imagine yesterday's favorites for today's audiences with the staging of this summertime sizzler!
