A quick summary of the plot (without spoilers!) is as follows: Richard Adler and Jerry Ross’ Damn Yankees is a rousing musical comedy based on Douglass Wallop’s novel "The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant." Faust meets professional baseball as middle-aged baseball fanatic, Joe Boyd, makes a deal with the Devil for a chance to lead his all-time favorite team, the Washington Senators, to victory. His fantasies become reality as he is transformed into Joe Hardy, the young baseball sensation the Senators need in order to win the pennant race against the New York Yankees. Everything Boyd thought he had ever wanted comes true but he eventually realizes that not everything that glitters is gold—but by then it is too late!
Make sure you catch this phenomenal performance before it is too late!
