PHOTO CALL: That Championship Season, With Kiefer Sutherland, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Noth and Jason Patric, Opens on Broadway
By Irina Khodorkovsky
The starry Broadway revival of Jason Miller's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning 1972 drama That Championship Season, which boasts the Broadway debut of screen star Kiefer Sutherland, officially opened on Broadway March 6 at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Directed by Gregory Mosher, the production will continue through May 29. Previews began Feb. 9.
Brian Cox (Rock 'n' Roll, Art) portrays the retired basketball coach in Miller's Scranton, PA-set drama about a team of high school basketball players who reunite to hash out the past on the anniversary of their winning game.
Here is a look at the opening night:
According to producers, "On the anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a small-town Catholic high school basketball team gather with their coach to re-live their youthful glory. As the night progresses, the long buried grudges and secrets of the once-confident players surface, threatening not just their solidarity, but the meaning of their victory. With savage humor, That Championship Season probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs."
Tickets, priced $61.50-$129, are available through Telecharge.com, by phone at (212) 239-6200 or (800) 432-7250 or in person at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 W. 45th Street) box office.
