By Eric Simonson, based on the book When Pride Still Mattered — A Life of Vince Lombardi written by David Mar
Presented in the Studio Theater
Sport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi, unquestionably one of the most inspirational and quotable personalities of all time. Though football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man—his inspirations, his passions and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible. This mixed-media production will follow Lombardi’s journey attempting to lead the Green Bay Packers to the 1965 Championship. Eric Simonson’s award-winning script will have you cheering from your seats.
