WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Critically acclaimed playwright Richard Greenberg's Take Me Out is a deeply funny and provocative take on America's favorite pastime, baseball. The boys in the locker room will never be the same when the most charismatic, successful, and universally praised player in the league reveals a scandalous truth. Darren Lemming, a young baseball star, is at the top of his game, professionally and personally. He decides to call a press conference that results in a shocking admission to the waiting media - "I don't have a secret. I am a secret." Take Me Out chronicles the fall out from Lemming's action as its ripples spread through the team, the media, and across the nation - and its completely personal impact on finance manager Mason Marzac, who learns to love a game he thought he'd never understand. A complex - and humorous - meditation on several themes, Take Me Out is ultimately an American tale infused with a genuine passion for the game. Joe Mantello directs. Tere will be no performance on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 25.
