It has been announced that this autumn, baseball musical Damn Yankees will show at The Landor Theatre.

From the composing and writing talent behind The Pajama Game, and with eight Tony Awards including Best Musical under its cap, Damn Yankees is a musical with enduring heart sure to be a home run hit.

When a devilish dealmaker offers Joe Boyd the chance to help the Washington Senators, his beloved baseball team, to win the Pennant race against those ‘Damn Yankees’, Joe takes it. But, as the Senators’ stats soar, Joe realises he’s losing his wife and looks for a loophole.

Enter sizzling-hot temptress Lola – a founding member of the Home Wreckers Hall of Fame. Who will win? We’re not telling!”

From Wednesday 1st October until Saturday 8th November 2014, you’ll be able to catch the show at The Landor. It marks 75 years after the retirement of Lou Gehrig – the famous Yankees player who was forced to retire after being diagnosed with ALS (Motor Neurone Disease), which has frequented the headlines under the guise of the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’. Gehrig’s ‘Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth’ speech has become an iconic moment in the history of baseball and Damn Yankees at the Landor is staged in recognition of his bravery and achievements.
