Damn Yankees

Wednesday, October 3, 2001

Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, "Damn Yankees" is a home run whose all-American subject matter and irreverent sense of humor have brought many a sports fan into the theatre.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team only to realize the true worth of the life (and the wife) he's left behind. With the help of a handy escape clause and a guilt-ridden temptress named Lola, Joe outsmarts Applegate, and returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7 pm. Tickets available at the Show Me Center and Schnucks. For more information call (573)651-5000.
