Swing for the fences with the baseball musical Damn Yankees. It's the tale of Joe Boyd, a die-hard fan who sells his soul to the devil in order to become a star player for his beloved baseball team. He becomes a young baseball sensation, transforming the hapless team and putting them into a pennant race against the Yankees. This home run musical features a memorable Richard Adler and Jerry Ross score, including audience favorites like "Whatever Lola Wants," "Those Were the Good Old Days" and "(You Gotta Have) Heart."

Irving Berlin once summed up the pair’s achievement with his famous rhyming maxim: “Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart—-music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart.” The Rodgers/Hart partnership resulted in the scores for 30 stage musicals and nine films. (Rodgers, of course, later worked with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.)
“Beguiled Again” is a cleverly compiled revue of songs and vignettes. One sequence evokes the frenzy of the “Hollywood Machine” with the studio employees racing from one picture to another and a most unlikely starlet who gets “discovered.” A live radio show is presented replete with the slick host, trio of songbirds, and overwrought stage manager who provides all the sound effects including a tap number with the shoes on his hands.
The show’s limited Southern California tour is produced by Broadway singer/actress Teri Ralston, who also performs in the revue. Ralston was featured in the original Broadway casts of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” and “A Little Night Music.”
