LOMBARDI’s Judith Light featured on www.outsports.com

LOMBARDI’s JUDITH LIGHT FEATURED ON OUTSPORTS.COM


Judith Light is currently earning rave reviews for her performance as Marie Lombardi in Broadway’s LOMBARDI.  Today, she is featured on Outsports.com speaking to reporter Cyd Zeigler about her current stage role and her work with the gay community.

 

“What could a play about the roughest, toughest, most legendary coach in NFL history have to do with a gay audience? You might be surprised, but there’s plenty in the current Broadway run of “Lombardi on Broadway” to keep theatergoers of any sexual orientation intrigued and entertained.  At the top of that list is the performance of actress Judith Light who plays Vince’s wife, Marie. Light is best-known for her long-running stint as Angela Bower on the hit TV series, Who’s the Boss. Light has long been an advocate for the equality of gay and HIV-positive people. In fact, she said the overarching theme of Lombardi is exactly what drew her to the gay community in the late ‘80s and early ’90s.”  To read the entire piece, CLICK HERE.

Former New York Giants JEFF FEAGLES and AMANI TOOMER to Sign Autographs at LOMBARDI on January 11

 

Punter Jeff Feagles and wide receiver Amani Toomer, both formerly of the New York Giants, will be signing autographs in the lower lobby of the Circle in the Square Theatre on Tuesday, January 11 from 6:30-7:00pm.  The 2007 Vince Lombardi Trophy, awarded to the New York Giants upon their victory in Super Bowl XLIII, will also be on display in the lower lobby from January 11 through January 16, 2011.

Join the LOMBARDI cast after the show every Tuesday and Thursday in January for a post-show “talkback.”

LOMBARDI opened in October and both theatre critics and sports writers weighed in:

 

“Eric Simonson has given us an extremely well-crafted piece of intelligent middlebrow theater, a regular-guy equivalent of Frost/Nixon. A good one for the guys.  It is both tasty and filling. I know nothing about football and less about the Green Bay Packers, but LOMBARDI  held my attention from start to finish, and when it was over, I went home feeling properly entertained.” Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

 

“There’s a place for LOMBARDI in the Broadway huddle…  It is theatrical catnip for husbands or boyfriends otherwise reluctant to see most Broadway shows: Football! Vince Lombardi! The legendary Packers!” The Associated Press

 

“Even if you never cared about Lombardi, you will enjoy LOMBARDI. And that really is everything.” Mike Vaccaro, New York Post

 

“I loved LOMBARDI” Fox Five

 

“A rare Broadway drama that’s also a real crowd-pleaser.” AOL

 

“Sports fans will get a huge kick out of the it, but there’s plenty for the uninitiated as well. As entertainment, LOMBARDI scores points.” Roma Torre, NY1

 

“With its uniformly good cast, tight direction and frequent flashes of humor, Lombardi is solid playing in every sense of the word.” David Cote, Time Out New York

 

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 production opened in October at Circle in the Square Theatre.

Broadway’s LOMBARDI in Today’s New York Times

LOMBARDI in Today’s New York Times

 

Broadway’s LOMBARDI has just announced a new block of tickets on sale through June 19 2011.  In today’s New York Times, reporter Patrick Healy writes about the challenges facing shows currently running on Broadway, and what LOMBARDI’s producers are doing to attract audiences ’beyond the usual theatre crowd.”

 Delving Into the Broadway Playbook to Stay Open

“In the face of daunting odds — odds that led nine Broadway shows to close on Sunday — stands “Lombardi,” the play about the legendary Green Bay Packers coach that is the only brand-new drama to survive the fall season. The producers of “Lombardi” made the bullish announcement on Tuesday that they would extend ticket sales through June 19, even though the winter is traditionally a graveyard for plays like this one, which lack audience-drawing stars.

So what fills the producers with a fighting spirit that Vince Lombardi would admire? Confidence in a marketing strategy that is aimed at sports fans and men, not just the usual theater crowd. The producers of this biographical play have already booked visits by fans from colleges with proud sports traditions, like Fordham (Lombardi’s alma mater), Syracuse and Boston College, and they have promoted the show as a kind of leadership training to draw in CBS sales executives on a team-building retreat and members of the Miami Dolphins who were in town to play the Jets last month.

The producers are also reaching a more traditional Broadway crowd by promoting their two lead actors, Dan Lauria as Lombardi, and Judith Light as his wife, Marie, who are giving critically praised performances.”  READ THE ENTIRE STORY HERE Continue reading
