Of the many shady trades in baseball history, none have equaled the dark brilliance of the offer in Damn Yankees, the devilishly clever musical comedy about America’s favorite pastime. Based on the novel “The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant,” middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees.
This Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park!
