  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Lombardi

    Charles Isherwood

    October 21, 2010: 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.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Lombardi

    October 21, 2010: 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.

  • WALL STREET JOURNAL REVIEW OF Lombardi

    October 21, 2010: 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.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Lombardi

    October 21, 2010: 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.
