Rehearsals begin today for THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON starring Brian Cox, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Noth, Jason Patric and Kiefer Sutherland. Jason Miller’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is directed by Gregory Mosher. Preview performances begin on Wednesday, February 9th, 2011 with an official opening on Sunday, March 6th, 2011 at the Bernard B Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45 Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, May 29th, 2011.

THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is produced by Robert Cole, Frederick Zollo, Shelter Island Enterprises, The Shubert Organization, James MacGilvray, Orin Wolf, The Weinstein Company, Redefined Entertainment and Brannon Wiles.

 

THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON made its debut at the Public Theater in May 1972 before moving to Broadway’s Booth Theatre where it went on to win the Pulitzer Prize, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play and the Tony Award for Best Play for the 1973 season.  It played a total of 944 performances on and off Broadway.

THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is a powerhouse drama about the promise of youth… and the challenge of staying in the game. For over two decades, four players and the coach of a high school championship basketball team have gathered every year to re-live their greatest moment of glory. While three of the players have found small-town success, the fourth has never found his way.  At this year’s reunion, tensions boil over, and as the celebratory evening turns brutal, long-held secrets bubble to the surface and life-long bonds are shattered.

On the anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a small-town Catholic high school basketball team gather with their coach to re-live their youthful glory.  As the night progresses, the long buried grudges and secrets of the once-confident players surface, threatening not just their solidarity, but the meaning of their victory. With savage humor, THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs. In his original review of the play in the New York Times, Clive Barnes wrote, “Wow! This is precisely the kind of relevant and hard-hitting play that Broadway should be doing if it has any chance of survival. That Championship Season is Broadway theatre at its finest.” Continue reading
