Photo Coverage: DAMN YANKEES Celebrates Opening Night at Paper Mill Playhouse

Paper Mill Playhouse just opened Damn Yankees, directed by Paper Mill Playhouse's Producing Artistic Director, Mark S. Hoebee, with choreography by Denis Jones. The cast features Howard McGillin (Applegate), Chryssie Whitehead (Lola), Christopher Charles Wood (Joe Hardy), Joseph Kolinski (Joe Boyd), Patti Cohenour (Meg Boyd) and Nancy Anderson (Gloria Thorpe). 

BroadwayWorld was there for the big opening and brings you coverage from the first curtain call below!

Winner of eleven Tony® Awards including Best Musical and Best Choreography, Damn Yankees features a book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop, music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, this classic musical will have fans on The Edge of their seats as they enjoy hit favorites like "Whatever Lola Wants," "Heart" and "Six Months Out of Every Year."

When a devilish dealmaker offers Joe Boyd the chance to take his beloved Washington Senators to victory over the "damn Yankees" in return for his soul, Joe takes it. But as the Senators' stats soar, Joe realizes he's losing his wife and looks for a loophole. Enter sizzling-hot temptress Lola, a charter member of the Home-wreckers Hall of Fame. Who will win? We're not telling!

Damn Yankees will be performed eight times a week, Wednesday through Sunday. Single tickets are on sale from $25. Tickets may be purchased by calling 973-376-4343, at the Paper Mill Playhouse Box Office at 22 Brookside Drive in Millburn, or online at www.papermill.org.
