TicketNetwork Advisory -- Lombardi Appeals to Broadway and Football Fans Alike

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  A new kind of show is coming to Broadway this season, one that producers hope will appeal to both sports fans and typical theater-goers. Lombardi is a new play about Vince Lombardi, the acclaimed football coach after whom the Super Bowl trophy was named.

The show is based on Lombardi's biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi and focuses on one week during the 1965 Green Bay Packers season, as the team fights for the championship. The play also explores the relationship between Lombardi, played by Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years), and his wife Marie, portrayed by Judith Light (Ugly Betty, Who's the Boss?). The production has partnered with the NFL to provide a full and enriching experience; the NFL has provided several priceless artifacts of the life and times of Lombardi, which are displayed in the lobby of Circle in the Square Theatre.

Lombardi officially opens October 21, but Lombardi tickets are already disappearing quickly. Fans of the theater and the famous coach won't want to miss this unique show.
