Although we don't tend to dine out before or after plays, there are several places to eat right there by the theatre.

Description

By Brian Golden

Directed by Brian Stojak

It is the summer of 1962, and Jackie Robinson is about to be the first black player inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame. That doesn’t mean much to Junior Murphy, a black diner employee who can’t get a promotion, and whose little sister has her own history-making plans for the weekend. When a Midwest minor-leaguer comes to town chasing his idol, the collision of race, love and baseball turns a sleepy New York town upside down.
