Damn-Yankees-Color

Book by Douglass Wallop & George Abbott

Music & Lyrics by Jerry Ross & Richard Adler

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop

Presented by MAS Community Theatre

Directed by Aaron Washington

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race 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 that he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Damn Yankees is being produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

“Eira” by Rebecca Piskura

Art is more than the result; it is the process that makes it great.  Somewhere between the original thought and the canvas, magic happens.  To me, as an artist, this magic is nowhere more apparent then when I’m striving to capture the light, emotion, beauty and mystery found in the endlessly fascinating always individual and expressive human face.
