MTW presents DAMN YANKEES – October 14 – 30, 2022

A Home Run Hit!

How far would you go to help your favorite team win? Would you risk your wife, your life, your very soul? Joe Hardy is about to find out, when his despair over the state of the Washington Senators summons a sulfuric stranger with an offer Joe can’t refuse. Featuring audience favorites like, “Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, MO.,” “Heart,” and “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets,” Damn Yankees is a Faustian fun-fest that celebrates love, baseball, and the importance of an escape clause.
