STAGE TUBE: On This Day 5/5- DAMN YANKEES

May 5
11:00 AM 2013

Welcome to BWW's ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!

Today in 1954, Damn Yankees opened at the 46th Street Theatre (now the Richard Rodgers Theatre), where it ran for 1019 performances. Damn Yankees is a musical comedy with a book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. The story is a modern retelling of the Faust legend set during the 1950s in Washington, D.C., during a time when the New York Yankees dominated Major League Baseball.

In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Whatever Lola Wants' as performed by Gwen Verdon in the 1958 film. Click below to check it out!
