That Championship Season - 2011 - Broadway History , Info & More

Two-time Olivier Award winner Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity), Jim Gaffigan (Salvation Boulevard), Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth (The Good Wife), Jason Patric (Cat On A Hot Tin Roof) and Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland (24) star in Broadway’s classic drama That Championship Season.



Jason Miller’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play returns to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement. Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Gregory Mosher (A View From The Bridge), That Championship Season is a powerhouse drama about the promise of youth… and the challenge of staying in the game.



For over two decades, four players and the coach of a high school championship basketball team have gathered every year to re-live their greatest moment of glory. While three of the players have found small-town success, the fourth has never found his way. At this year's reunion, tensions boil over, and as the celebratory evening turns brutal, long-held secrets bubble to the surface and life-long bonds are shattered.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR That Championship Season

A boozy, brawling winner
5 / 10

In the new Broadway revival of Season (* * ½ out of four), which opened Sunday at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, a starry cast that includes Miller's son Jason Patric reintroduces these no-longer-young men. Over two boozy hours (in the short first act, virtually every other line seems to be an invitation to imbibe), they revisit old grievances and form new ones, gradually tearing to shreds both past glories and present accomplishments.

'That Championship Season' -- 2 stars
1 / 10

Sutherland is wasted as a subservient lackey with false teeth. Noth is typecast as a pompous philanderer and sleepwalks through his role. Patric overplays his character’s drunken binge to the point of being ridiculous. On the other hand, Gaffigan is credibly insecure, and Cox makes the biggest impression as a coach past his prime who is unable to adapt to a politically correct environment.

Review - Good People & That Championship Season
by Ben Peltz - March 27, 2011


If Bill Clinton really was, as Toni Morrison put it, America's first black president, then perhaps it's about time we crowned David Lindsay-Abaire as America's leading female playwright.  Since first gaining major attention in 1999 with Fuddy Meers, and including major productions such as Kimberly Akimbo, Wonder of the World and the Pulitzer-winning Rabbit Hole, Lindsay-Abaire (whose surname is a hyphenated combination of his and his wife's last names) has been continually filling stages with unique and interesting women as his leading characters.
