    If You Stage It, They Will Come: ‘Bronx Bombers’ at Circle in the Square

    Charles Isherwood

    February 6, 2014: Talk about your fantasy baseball team. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, for starters. Plus Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio. Add the catcher Elston Howard, the first black player on the New York Yankees roster, and throw in the team’s current captain, Derek Jeter. Strange though it may sound, this pinstriped pantheon sits down to dine together in a dream sequence from Bronx Bombers, an affectionate celebration of Yankee greatness (with a smidgen of Yankee angst) written and directed by Eric Simonson. The play, which opened at the Circle in the Square on Thursday night, is the third in Mr. Simonson’s series of rah-rah dramas about famous sports figures to be presented on Broadway, following Lombardi and Magic/Bird, two similarly workmanlike plays about legendary names from the worlds of football and basketball.

    STAGE REVIEW Bronx Bombers

    Melissa Rose Bernardo

    February 6, 2014: Bronx Bombers’ Broadway premiere has one thing going for it: great timing. While New York Yankee fans count down the days to the start of spring training (pitchers and catchers report to Tampa in eight days) and opening day (just 60 days until the home opener against the Baltimore Orioles!), the Yankee faithful can spend two hours in midtown Manhattan reminiscing about the club’s storied history for about the price of a single-game field-level seat. Peanuts and Cracker Jack sold separately. But just about any CenterStage, Yankees on Deck, or Yankees Magazine show on New York’s local YES Network provides more insight and drama into the 27-time World Series champion team than Bronx Bombers — and for a lot less dough.

    Review: Peter Scolari Comes to Bat as Yogi Berra in

    Robert Kahn

    February 6, 2014: This month must feel like deja vu all over again for playwright and director Eric Simonson (Lombardi), whose New York Yankees homage Bronx Bombers has just opened at Circle in the Square on the heels — um, better make that cleats — of an Off-Broadway premiere in the fall. Sharpened, but still dubiously crafted, Bronx Bombers is a jock drama that will appeal to any Yankees fanatic, but leave others restless in the bleachers.

    David Cote

    February 6, 2014: If penning sports plays were a competition, Eric Simonson would be MVP. He’s found drama in football coaching (Lombardi), basketball rivalry (Magic/Bird) and now, with Bronx Bombers, the national pastime. None of these qualify as great works, but for some theatergoers, they offer tantalizing glimpses into exotic subcultures. When might the bard of ESPN get around to synchronized swimming and the caber toss?

    Theater review: 'Bronx Bombers' -- 2 stars

    Matt Windman

    February 6, 2014: The tender-hearted, super- sappy New York Yankees tribute Bronx Bombers, which just transferred to Broadway's Circle in the Square after a short Off-Broadway run, really ought to be playing in Cooperstown as a sort of side show for tourists visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. It could be done with animatronics instead of actors, a la "The Hall of Presidents" at Disney World.
