LOMBARDI’s BILL DAWES Featured on NewJerseyNewsroom.Com


Princeton graduate Bill Dawes is currently on Broadway in LOMBARDI starring Dan Lauria as the legendary Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi and Judith Light as his wife Marie.  Newjerseynewsroom.com featured him today:

“There aren’t too many Princeton graduates with Aerospace Engineering degrees starring on Broadway. But Bill Dawes, an actor and comedian who has appeared in dozens of films, TV series and plays, took that unusual route to the theatre, realizing upon graduation that he was “… a little too stupid to be a rocket scientist and decided to hop the art train, heading to NYU graduate school to get a MFA in Acting. MFA, of course, is short for ‘Mother and Father Annoyed.’ ”

Dawes, who is the house MC at The Laugh Factory in Manhattan, in addition to playing the key role of Paul Hornung in LOMBARDI opposite Dan Lauria (Vince Lombardi) and Judith Light (Marie Lombardi) on Broadway, took a few minutes to talk to Newjerseynewsroom.com about his career and N.J. roots.”

LOMBARDI opened in October  at the Circle in the Square Theatre and is directed by Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail.  LOMBARDI is an original

play by Academy Award-winning playwright Eric Simonson, based on the best-selling biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize winner David Maraniss. The cast also features Keith Nobbs as Michael McCormick, Robert Christopher Riley as Dave Robinson and Chris Sullivan as Jim Taylor.  Joining producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Kirmser as special producing partner is the National Football League, marking the organization’s first foray on Broadway.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200, or in person at the Box Office (50th Street, West of Broadway).
