About this show

Based on The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees gives a new twist to the legend of Faust when a middle-aged baseball fan, Joe Boyd, sells his soul to the Devil, a.k.a. Mr. Applegate, for the chance to play for the Washington Senators. Transformed into a young man, this over-eager fan's dreams are soon fulfilled when he finds himself leading the team in both hitting and pitching, but this musical keeps the story interesting, for there is a price to be paid, and the Devil and his seductive assistant Lola are waiting to collect. Featuring a book by Douglass Wallop & George Abbott, and music and lyrics by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross, the show features musical numbers including "Heart," "A Man Doesn't Know," "Whatever Lola Wants," "Those Were The Good Old Days" and "Two Lost Souls."
