Roundabout’s benefit presentation of Damn Yankees will take place December 11 at 7:30 PM at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre and will be directed by Roundabout Associate Artist Kathleen Marshall. Proceeds from the event will benefit the organization’s programming, education, and outreach initiatives.

In George Abbott, Douglass Wallop, Richard Adler, and Jerry Ross’ Tony-winning musical, a man sells his soul to the devil to become a baseball player and help his beloved Washington Senators beat the Yankees in the World Series. The show debuted on Broadway in 1955 and was last seen on Broadway in 1993.

The benefit presentation is presented by special arrangement with Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Scott Landis.

For tickets, visit RoundaboutTheatre.org. Tax-deductible benefit tickets are available by calling Roundabout's Development Office at (212) 719-9393, ext. 369.
