A play about Vince Lombardi

For some reason I don’t expect we will hear the same mocking jokes about this play as we heard about the one on Alabama Crimson Tide coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant.

According to the AP, “The NFL is taking Vince Lombardi to Broadway. For the first time, the league will help produce a Broadway play, its first venture into live theater. The league will serve as a special producing partner of ‘Lombardi,’ which will star Dan Lauria, a regular on the TV show ‘The Wonder Years’ and former college football player and high school coach. ‘Lombardi’ is scheduled to open Oct. 21 at the Circle in the Square Theatre. It will be directed by Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail.” (read the entire AP story below)
