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 is the third work in a sports series for the stage conceived by producer Fran Kirmser. This is also the third work in the series where Tony Ponturo has brought major sports leagues to the theatre. Kirmser & Ponturo strive to build new original works and bring new patrons to experience the magic of the stage initially by combining the drama of sports and theater through Kirmser Ponturo Group. Lombardi and Magic/Bird were the first two productions of that vision. Bronx Bombers is the third production.
