LOMBARDI star DAN LAURIA in New York Post

LOMBARDI Star DAN LAURIA  Featured in New York Post

“as” Vince Lombardi

In the sports pages of Sunday’s New York Post, actor Dan Lauria took on his onstage alter ego Vince Lombardi in an interview with Steve Serby.   Lauria is currently starring on Broadway as the legendary coach in LOMBARDI at Circle in the Square Theatre, 50th Street, west of Broadway.

Q: Coach Lombardi, if one of your teams suffered the kind of collapse the Giants did against the Eagles, what would you tell your team?

A: I’d say this has happened to test our steel. What kind of men are you now? The measure of a man is not how he falls down, but how he pulls himself off the ground.

Q: How emotional would you get during the week?

A: I’d be emotional in practice during the week. If I saw somebody with his head down, I’d be in their face right away [saying], “This game is the game in front of us. You’re a pro. You move forward. You don’t move back.”

Q: What would you tell the Packers in this spot?

A: You got the Giants on their heels. You gotta go at them right away and they’ll collapse. READ MORE HERE Continue reading

BY JOSEPH V. AMODIO

Newsday

Dan Lauria sits with a bowl of mushroom barley soup at a diner near the Circle in the Square theater, where he stars in “Lombardi,” a new play that opened last week.

The famous gruff TV dad – from “The Wonder Years” – plays legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, with a famous TV mom – Judith Light, of “Who’s the Boss?” – as his ever-patient, wisecracking wife. The play reveals the fragile, complicated relationship they maintained while he did the impossible: transform a lousy NFL team into a winning machine that nabbed five league championships in seven years. No other coach has come close to that feat. Continue reading
