Would you do anything to help your favorite baseball team win the pennant? In the Faustian musical comedy Damn Yankees, Joe Boyd sells his soul to the devil to be the home-run hitter who will guide his favorite team, the Washington Senators, to a win against those "damn Yankees." To the tune of such classics as "Heart," "Two Lost Souls," and "Whatever Lola Wants," viewers follow Joe on his quest to save his team...and his soul. Starring in this benefit concert reading of the Tony Award-winning Damn Yankees are Tony and Academy Award winners Whoopi Goldberg and James Earl Jones as well as Golden Globe winner Maggie Gyllenhaal.
The classic play The Jew of Malta by Christopher Marlowe will be performed in a stage-reading version starring actor and opera star David Serero as Barabas. This one-night-only performance will feature Sephardic songs sung by Serero.
The evening is presented by the American Sephardi Federation.
