Photo Coverage: Damn Yankees Opening Night NY City Center

On July 10th, 2008 the musical Damn Yankees, running at New York City Center (55th Street between 6th & 7th Avenues) officially opened.  Damn Yankees is directed by John Rando and has Music Direction by Rob Berman and the original Bob Fosse choreography recreated by Mary MacLeod. Damn Yankees has  music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross,  book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and is based on Wallop's novel "The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant." It is the story of Joe Boyd (P. J. Benjamin), the ultimate baseball fan, who sells his soul to the Devil (Sean Hayes) for the chance to help his team win the pennant race against the Yankees.  The Devil is aided by the sexy Lola (Jane Krakowski), who seduces a now younger, physically transformed Joe (Cheyenne Jackson), but ultimately helps him outsmart the Devil and return to his beloved wife (Randy Graff).

Damn Yankees opened on Broadway at the 46th Street Theatre on May 5, 1955, and ran for 1019 performances, winning four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Choreography (Bob Fosse), Best Actor (Ray Walton) and Best Actress (Gwen Verdon). Songs include "Heart" and "Whatever Lola Wants."
