What Do You Want to Know About Lombardi?

This weekend the Broadway cast of Lombardi brings a Packers' legacy to life in a series of dramatic readings at the Fox Cities P.A.C. Led by veteran actor Dan Lauria ("The Wonder Years"), the play by Wisconsin's own Eric Simonson soars in a dramatic reading. Without the costumes and makeup, without the pigskin props and muddy cleats, the legend of Lombardi has the spotlight. 

In addition to the readings, ticket holders have the chance to interact with the Broadway cast. Following the Friday and Saturday matinee readings, the cast will host a postshow chatback with the audience.

What do you want to know about Lombardi?
Post your questions, and we’ll pick one to ask the cast after the Friday matinee!

Broadway Buzz: Lombardi Paves the Way for Magic/Bird

Attention NBA Fans! With all the Lombardi excitement, have you felt left out because Broadway didn’t have a story for you? Don’t worry, a new show is in the works.
Magic/Bird, a new play by Wisconsin’s own Eric Simonson (Lombardi), will showcase the lives of basketball stars Larry Bird and Earvin “Magic” Johnson in the 1980s. Sports enthusiasts and Lombardi producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Kirmser told Variety they are creating Magic/Bird as a follow-up and hoping to make sports theater into a series or genre. Maybe we’ll see a Brewers story one of these years!
The initial rivalry between Larry Bird and Magic Johnson grew into a famous friendship as they battled for three championships on the court and now both living legends are sharing their history through a series of interviews with Simonson. The NBA has added its official endorsement, so watch for Magic/Bird to open on Broadway in spring 2012.
If you’re celebrating the news of the upcoming NFL season, tickets are still available for Lombardi: A Reading by the Broadway Cast at the Fox Cities P.A.C. July 28-30!
