The Vince Lombardi Trophy
“A Fantastic Production!”
—The Star-LedgerSport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi, unquestionably one of the most inspirational and quotable personalities of all time. Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years) and two–time Emmy Award winner Judith Light head the cast of LOMBARDI, a new American play by Academy Award winner and Steppenwolf Theatre Company member Eric Simonson.
Though football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man–his inspirations, his passions and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible. Directed by Tony® nominee Thomas Kail (In The Heights), LOMBARDI is based on the best–selling biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Maraniss.
LOMBARDI is 95 minutes long with no intermission
