A.R.T. Presents Johnny Baseball


If Ted Willams were still around, he’d have a front-row seat.

The American Repertory Theater’s new musical Johnny Baseball recounts the day the curse of the Bambino was broken in 2004.

Set at friendly Fenway, Johnny Baseball chronicles the life of original characters Johnny O’Brien (Colin Donnell), a 1919 member of the Red Sox, Daisy Wyatt (Stephanie Umoh), a blues singer and the love of Johnny’s life, and Babe Ruth (Burke Moses). Based on a story by Richard Dresser and Willie Reale, Johnny Baseball comes to life with the music of Robert Reale and his brother Willie’s lyrics.

The American Repertory Theater’s production of Johnny Baseball runs through July 11 at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle St., Cambridge. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
