Johnny Baseball

July 24 - August 3 | Nikos Stage
2013 Season

Author: Reale, Robert, Richard Dresser, and Willie Reale
Director: Greenberg, Gordon

The infamous Curse of the Boston Red Sox is brought to life through the fortunes of three orphaned souls: Johnny O’Brien, a hard-luck right-hander on the 1919 Sox; his idol, Babe Ruth; and Daisy Wyatt, a dazzling African-American blues singer and the love of Johnny’s life. The mystical intertwining of their fates reveals the source of the Curse and the secret to its triumphant end off Big Papi’s bat in 2004. Packing resonant social history into a quintessentially American musical, Johnny Baseball will bring cheers and tears to baseball fans and theatre lovers alike.
