THE STORY: Sport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi, unquestionably one of the most inspirational and quotable personalities of all time. Though football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man—his inspirations, his passions and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible.
“I know nothing about football, but LOMBARDI held my attention from start to finish. I thought of my brother, a regular guy from a small Missouri town. I’d take him without a moment’s hesitation. An extremely well-crafted piece of intelligent theater.” —Wall Street Journal. “LOMBARDI is theatrical catnip for husbands and boyfriends otherwise reluctant to see most Broadway shows: Football! Vince Lombardi! The legendary Packers!” —Associated Press. “There’s enough flexibility in the text and performances that we see Lombardi as a tactical genius one minute and a screaming buffoon the next. His human flaws, alongside his talent, complete him…Lombardi is solid playing in every sense of the word.” —Time Out NY. “LOMBARDI scores!” —NY Daily News.
