Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre presents Paper Mill Playhouse's production of Damn Yankees- the story of an aging baseball fan who makes a deal with the Devil so his beloved hometown team can beat the Yankees in the race for the pennant. From the songwriting team of The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees is filled with hit songs including "Two Lost Souls" and the sultry favorite, "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets." The creative team includes direction by Mark S. Hoebee (Paper Mill's Producing Artistic Director), music direction by Ben Whiteley, and choreography by Denis Michael Jones.

Check out photos of the production below!

This Faustian tale will feature a line-up of hitters from Seattle and Broadway including Hugh Hastings as aging baseball enthusiast Joe Boyd, Christopher Charles Wood as Young Joe Hardy, Patti Cohenour as the baseball widow Meg Boyd, Hans Altwies as Mr. Applegate (the Devil in disguise), and Chryssie Whitehead as the legendary seductress Lola. Allen Fitzpatrick and Nancy Anderson join the roster as Coach Benny Van Buren and Gloria Thorpe, ace reporter.

Damn Yankees plays through May 20, 2012 at The 5th Avenue Theatre (1308 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101). Tickets (starting at $19.00) may be purchased at www.5thavenue.org, by phone at 206-625-1900, or at the Box Office at 1308 5th Avenue in downtown Seattle.
