Take Me Out - 2003 - Broadway

A home run Broadway hit, Ruchard Greenberg's witty, passionate and patriotic look at the "great American pasttime" sneaks a peak into that most exclusive of boys' clubs: the locker room of a major league ball team. When the NY Empires' star player comes out to the press with a closely held secret, assumptions are challenged, tradition is upended, friendships are tested, and the question of what it is to be American is explored in a naked and unflinchingly honest way.


Running Time: Two hours and 30 minutes with one intermission

Walter Kerr Theatre (Broadway)

(New York, NY)
