What is it?
Imperial Productions present Damn Yankees, based on the novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop.
Faust meets baseball in the fringe premiere of the classic Broadway musical. As middle-aged baseball fan Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil in order to help his favourite baseball team beat the New York Yankees, hell literally breaks loose. Transformed into baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he takes the Washington Senators to new heights whilst discovering the true worth of the life he was so quick to leave behind.
From song writing duo Adler and Ross (the team behind The Pajama Game) the memorable score features Whatever Lola Wants, Shoeless Joe, Who’s Got the Pain? and Heart. This Tony Award winning musical is brought to the London fringe in an exciting new form by Imperial Productions.
