That Championship Season on Broadway

I don't know about anyone else, but I am really getting tired of all this darn snow!! I never really liked it before, except Christmas Eve, when it is supposed to snow and I don't have to go to work, but this is crazy. We are getting snow every week and there is piles of it everywhere. So to cheer myself up.....guess what we just bought tickets to see......
yes, that is Chris Noth ...on broadway...with Keifer and a few other talented guys....
In this upcoming revival, Keifer Sutherland (making his Broadway debut), Chris Noth, Jason Patric (his dad Jason Miller wrote the Pulitzer winning drama) and Jim Gaffigan (another making his Broadway debut) star as former high school basketball players reuniting at the home of their coach played by Brian Cox, 20 years after taking home the championship trophy. 

The original movie starred some great actors like those listed on the dvd cover. The play was written by Jason Miller who lived much of his life in Scranton, Pennsylvania (about 25 minute drive from my home) which is also the home of the American version of The Office. Mr. Miller won the Pulitzer Prize in 1973 for writing this great drama. The movie takes place at the coach's home which is in Scranton. 

If you are interested in seeing this play, I would get tickets quickly with this great talented cast. The website is located HERE and you can order tickets from the site.....

I was really lucky to get a seat Row D Seat 7 .... I cannot wait for this show....will be a great way to ring in Spring and say good bye to Winter !!

How splendid! Thank you for providing the movie info - I am eager to see it. It's also to see Jason Patrick in the fray again - he looks wonderful! Needless to say, I was a fan back in the day and am glad to see he has not changed a smidge. I can't wait to hear your thoughts of the production.

Here's to hoping for an early Spring!

Lucky you! Getting to see Chris Noth up close in person! I had no idea he was on Broadway. I'm sure that will be a great play. Good cast all around.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and for the sweet words. I'm sick of all this snow too. I haven't been to NYC for a while and had been planning a daytrip when all the snow started. *sigh* Hopefully I'll make it there soon!

let's hope I can get some shots of them going in before the play starts...that would be cool...except I can't stalk..that's not me. but I will try as I know everyone will enjoy some real shots of them!! :)

Lisa: Chris Noth is a big fan of broadway and I am sure this won't be his last show but I felt with this cast, nice way to see him finally.

Awesome!! That will be an outstanding experience just for the actors alone, but it's a great story as well. At least NY is gorgeous when the taxis and cars are still and the snow covers everything...

Samantha Vérant said...

Wow! Mr. Big on Broadway with two of the original Lost Boys! (Keifer and Jason) You've got some great seats!

Sara Louise said...
