With ”Take Me Out,” Baseball’s Back on Broadway
Baseball is better than democracy.
Baseball’s most well-known connection to Broadway is, of course, 1955’s Damn Yankees, the Faustian tale of a pro-baseball wannabe who sells his soul for a shot at The Show. That show is silly, funny, dancey, and very stagey. It’s a big ‘ol Broadway musical.
Baseball’s now back on the Great White Way, but now it’s deadly (literally) serious, as Richard Greenberg’s 2002 play Take Me Out has been revived this fall, following a Tony-winning run in the spring.
It’s a sports play for people who might not love sports or for people who might not love plays.
