More Information


Pulsating with energy and hit songs like “You Gotta Have Heart” and “Whatever Lola Wants,” Damn Yankees instantly assumed its place as one of the great Broadway musicals. In addition to the seven Tony Awards it won in 1956, the 1994 Broadway revival garnered another five nominations including Best Revival (Musical). George Abbott and Douglass Wallop wrote the book, with music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. Damn Yankees is based on the novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Wallop.
