The AppleSox Baseball Club is excited to welcome the national touring production of “Damn Yankees” to the Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee (before it goes to Seattle) next Tuesday, February 28 for two shows at 4pm and 8pm. This is one of the biggest productions to come to the PAC.
Winner of 8 Tony Awards including “Best Musical”, Damn Yankees is musical comedy about a middle-aged baseball fanatic named Joe who trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team in the pennant race against the New York Yankees, only to realize the true worth of the life (and wife) he's left behind.
Damn Yankees opens in 1956 Washington, DC, where Meg Boyd and other "baseball widows" around the nation's capital lament about losing their husbands, who can be found doing nothing but watching TV or going to Griffith Stadium, all to cheer their beloved Washington Senators to victory over the New York Yankees “Six Months Out of Every Year”. Disheartened by another loss for the Senators, Meg's husband, Joe, mutters that he would sell his soul to the devil for "one long ball hitter" on the Senators. As soon as the words come out of his mouth, he is greeted by Satan himself in the form of the charismatic conman Mr. Applegate. Click here to read the entire synopsis.
