"A truly tremendous musical" -John McClain, Journal-American

"Here's a pennant winner if we ever saw one." -Robert Coleman, Daily Mirror

"What fun it is, in this fantasy about the national pastime, to watch the Devil scheme, a temptress vamp, an old man turn young and scrappy athletes reverse their fortunes." -The New York Times
The original production of DAMN YANKEES opened on Broadway May 5, 1955 and closed October 12, 1957, playing for a total of 1,019 performances. Directed by George Abbott, the musical featured Gwen Verdon who went on to legendary mainstream status with a string of well-received shows. It was choreographed by superstar Bob Fosse--his first of many successful shows. DAMN YANKEES received its Broadway revival opening on March 3, 1994 at the Marquis Theatre and was considered a success. The 1994 DAMN YANKEES revival eventually transferred to the West End, opening at the Adelphi Theatre on June 4, 1997. DAMN YANKEES was produced by the City Center Encores! series from July 5 to July 27, 2008. It starred Jane Krakowski, Sean Hayes, and Randy Graff. Directed by John Rando with original Fosse choreography reproduced by Mary MacLeod, some considered it the first authentic revival of the original production.
