‘Damn Yankees’ Not Quite Home Run

Lake City Playhouse kicks off its 53rd season with the classic American musical comedy “Damn Yankees.” The production doesn’t hit a home run, but it does get some base hits. “Damn Yankees,” with book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, centers on Joe Boyd (Dennis Craig), an old baseball fan who makes a deal with the devil to become a young baseball phenomenon, Joe Hardy (Brendan Brady). Directed by George Green, the production features much humor and a tender side. Craig’s rendition of “Goodbye Old Girl” is particularly sweet, and he and Teri Grubbs, who plays Meg, Joe’s wife, have a nice rapport/Sandra Hosking, SR correspondent. (Kathy Plonka's SR photo: Lance Babbitt, David Kappus and Briane Green rehearse a scene from “Damn Yankees”)

Question: Do you plan to attend more Lake City Playhouse productions, now that Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre has shut its doors?
