March 3 marks the 25th anniversary of the opening of Damn Yankees in its 1994 Broadway revival. The production was directed by Jack O'Brien and choreographed by Rob Marshall, who earned a Tony nomination for his work. Victor Garber, Bebe Neuwirth, and Jarrod Emick starred, with Emick taking home a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance.

"King of Comedy" Jerry Lewis would eventually make his Broadway debut in the production, succeeding Garber in the role of Applegate; Lewis then went on to play the role in both the national tour and the West End production. The revival closed August 6, 1995.
