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 Theater (235 West 50th Street). The official opening is February 6, 2014. The cast was gathered yesterday to film a television commercial for the production, and you can check out full photo coverage from the special event below!

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).

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.
