Fast-paced and wickedly clever, Damn Yankees is an all-American home-run musical hit! An aging baseball fanatic is transformed into a star slugger after he makes a deal with the Devil. Can he lead his favorite team to victory against the New York Yankees and still outsmart the Devil to win his soul back in time? This Ordway production is the perfect summer treat for the entire family.
Damn Yankees is sponsored by the Minnesota Twins and Star Tribune.
