This play is about a middle-aged baseball fanatic, Joe Boyd who trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team, the Washington Senators, to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. Mr. Applegate grants his wish, turning him into a young sports superstar who must go back to his wife before 9 pm on the final game day if he doesn’t want Mr. Applegate to get his soul. Based on the novel “The Year The Yankees Lost The Pennant” by Douglass Wallop, DAMN YANKEES was a Broadway mega-hit and winner of 7 TONY Awards including Best Musical! Featuring “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets”, “You’ve Gotta Have Heart” and “Shoeless Joe from Hannibal Mo”! A light, fast-paced, and devilishly clever romantic comedy, sure to please. Showing will take place June 16 – July 3, Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays & Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets: $35 Center, $30 L & R, $15 Student VST MainStage http://www.virginiasamfordtheatre.org/season/damn-yankees/
