Dust off the home plate! Damn Yankees is headed to The 5th Avenue Theatre! This sinfully funny musical comedy is the story of an aging baseball fan who makes a deal with the Devil so his beloved hometown team can beat the Yankees in the race for the pennant.

From the songwriting team of The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees is filled with hit songs including “Two Lost Souls” and the sultry favorite, “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets.” Paper Mill Playhouse knocked this one out of the park, with The New York Times declaring the show “a first-rate, frequently thrilling revival.” Now the grand-slam production will slide into Seattle this April.

Damn Yankees plays Saturday, April 21 – Sunday, May 20 at The 5th Avenue Theatre (1308 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101). Tickets (starting at $19.00) may be purchased at http://www.5thavenue.org, by phone at 206.625.1900, or at the Box Office at 1308 5th Avenue in downtown Seattle.
