One Weekend Only

TAAC presents the Sacramento premiere of Eric Simonson's Lombardi, directed by Dean Shellenberger. 

During the 1965 NFL season, LOOK Magazine reporter Michael McCormick profiles legendary Green Bay Packers' coach Vince Lombardi to find out what makes him win. Lombardi warmly welcomes Michael in the hopes of improving his image and enlightens him on maintaining team-winning spirit. From his base at the Lombardi home, Michael ventures out to gain insight from players Dave Robinson and Jim Taylor who refuse to speak to him, wary of giving up information. Lombardi warns him to stay away from Taylor and introduces him to Paul Hornung to learn about how the Packers work.

This poignant play offers up insights into leadership, the struggles of co-habitation with a titan and the humor that exists in the most intense of circumstances.

Runs JULY 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 at the Chautauqua Playhouse
