Why See Damn Yankees?
Damn Yankees hits the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, WA, Closed May 20, 2012
Damn Yankees, a classic American musical, is a modern version of the story of Faust, the legendary sorcerer who sold his soul to Mephistopheles in exchange for magical powers. Set in the 1950s, this tale focuses on Joe, a devoted baseball fan in his forties, and a mysterious figure who calls himself "Applegate." Applegate has an irresistible offer for Joe: he can be twenty-two again, join his favorite team, the Washington Senators, and become a hero by helping the Senators beat a team that then seemed invincible—the New York Yankees. Joe agrees to leave his wife and home behind, but he insists on an escape clause so that he can return.
Opening night: 24 April 2012
Suitable for ages 10 and up.
