Photo Flash: Former New York Yankee Billy Sample Visits Broadway's BRONX BOMBERS
Bronx Bombers, a new American play by Eric Simonson, produced on Broadway by Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo, and directed by Eric Simonson, welcomed former New York Yankee Billy Sample and RAndy Jones of the Village People last night. BroadwayWorld has a look back at their visit below!
Starring Peter Scolari as Yogi Berra, 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), Tracy Shayne (Carmen Berra), 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.
Bronx Bombers officially opens February 6, 2014 at Circle in the Square Theatre.
