The show started about 15 minutes late. This seems to be a regular thing with L.A. theatre. It seems as if the inconsiderate late arrivers get better treatment than the majority of people who manage to arrive on time. I say start the show PROMPTLY at the time indicated on the ticket and seat the late comers in the back of the theatre if they arrive after curtain time. As for the show, it was enjoyable. A lot of rough spots. I think they should have kept it as it was originally written. The "updates" just didn't seem to work and didn't really add ANYTHING. If the update is set in the 1980's then why were there references by Applegate to Britney Spears, Dr. Laura and Paris Hilton?
A middle-aged man finds himself endlessly frustrated that his beloved L.A. Dodgers are constantly thwarted by those…well, damn Yankees. In desperation, he makes a deal with the Devil to sell his soul in exchange for becoming a youthful baseball star, who is quickly adopted by the Dodgers. Though his dreams of success and fame get closer every day, he finds himself yearning more and more for the woman he left behind. The Devil tries to soothe that yearning by conjuring Lola, an irresistible temptress. If she can succeed, the Devil will claim another soul. But in the battle of fantasies versus true love, one can never be sure who or what will emerge victorious.
The authors of this classic musical have given Reprise! permission to update and adapt the story. This is Damn Yankees like you’ve never seen it before.
