Broadway’s LOMBARDI to Donate $2 for Every Ticket Sold in March
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Dan Lauria, who stars in LOMBARDIon Broadway as the inspirational football coach Vince Lombardi, has taped a public service announcement encouraging people to get screened. It can be seen at http://lombardibroadway.com/march.php. LOMBARDI will donate $2 to colon cancer research for every ticket sold between March 7-31 for any March 2011 performance.
Coach Lombardi was a fighter all his life, but there was one opponent that even Coach couldn’t defeat on his own; he was just 57 years old when he succumbed to colon cancer. Today, thanks to simple medical screenings, everyone has the means to diagnose and stop colorectal cancer before it’s too late.
Directed by Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail, LOMBARDI is an original play by Academy Award-winning playwright Eric Simonson, based on the best-selling biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize winner David Maraniss. The production opened in October at Circle in the Square Theatre.
Starring Dan Lauria as the legendary Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi and Judith Light as his wife Marie, LOMBARDI also features Keith Nobbs as Michael McCormick, Bill Dawes as Paul Hornung, Robert Christopher Riley as Dave Robinson and Chris Sullivan as Jim Taylor. Joining producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Kirmser as special producing partner is the National Football League, marking the organization’s first foray on Broadway.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200, or in person at the Box Office (50th Street, West of Broadway).
