LOMBARDI BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: October 21, 2010
Synopsis: "People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses or the problems of modern society." - Vince Lombardi, inspirational coach of the Green Bay Packers football team (and Brooklyn native).
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Granted, the man has a lot to do. Like instilling professionalism, heart and fierce dedication in a frozen winter field full of young men. Like transforming a losing football team into a winning one in the span of a single season. And then leading that team to a series of history-making championships, including the first two Super Bowl titles."
"Finally, there’s a Broadway show to which husbands can drag their wives rather than the other way around. But though the new biodrama about famed football coach Vince Lombardi is bound to attract sports fans who otherwise would not venture near a theater, theatergoers not inherently interested in the subject are going to be a much tougher sell. Heavy on sports atmosphere but light on content, “Lombardi” doesn't make it to the goal line. "
"The late, legendary pro football coach Vince Lombardi is credited with coining several catchy aphorisms. But in Eric Simonson's Lombardi (* * ½ out of four), which opened Thursday at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre, we learn that one of the most famous actually predates him."
"Producers of "Lombardi" have been shrewd. They've seemingly come across theatrical catnip for husbands or boyfriends otherwise reluctant to see most Broadway shows: Football! Vince Lombardi! The legendary Packers!"
"The question in the minds of just about everybody who's written about Eric Simonson's "Lombardi" to date is this: Who's going to go see a play about a football coach who died 40 years ago? If memory serves, the last sports-themed play to do really well on Broadway was Richard Greenberg's "Take Me Out," whose protagonist, a center fielder, is not only gay but biracial to boot."
"Theatergoers do not need to be football fans to enjoy Eric Simonson's biodrama Lombardi, now playing at Broadway's Circle in the Square. In fact, the true joy in the unevenly crafted play, directed with sturdy proficiency by Thomas Kail, is savoring the portrait of a marriage that emerges thanks to Dan Lauria's turn as the title character, legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, and Judith Light's sterling performance as his understanding, football-widowed wife, Marie. "
