Now is the time to see Bronx Bombers, a new American play starring Peter Scolari (“Bosom Buddies,” “Newhart,” “Girls”) as Yogi Berra.  Bronx Bombers will play its final Broadway performance on Sunday, March 2 at 3PM at Circle in the Square Theatre (50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue).  Bronx Bombers is produced on Broadway by Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo, and written and directed by Eric Simonson.  For tickets and more information on Bronx Bombers, please visit www.BronxBombersPlay.com.  The production opened on February 6, 2014.

Ruth. Berra. Mantle. DiMaggio. Gehrig. Jeter. The New York Yankees on Broadway. A night you’ll never forget! Bronx Bombers is a new American play from the team behind Broadway's Lombardi, starring Peter Scolari ("Bosom Buddies", "Newhart") as beloved icon Yogi Berra, as we follow Yogi and his wife Carmen through a century of the team's trials and triumphs, bringing generations of Yankee greats together on one stage. As it celebrates and explores the timeless legacy of baseball's most iconic team, Bronx Bombers takes a fascinating look at how and why the Yankees have remained so undeniably great... and so powerfully inspirational!

Bronx Bombers creates the Yankees’ greatest memorabilia museum in Manhattan in the lobby of Circle in the Square Theatre. This is the first time the Yankees theatrical memorabilia has been showcased in a theatrical venue.

The design team includes Beowulf Borritt (Sets), David C. Woolard (Costumes), Jason Lyons (Lights) and Lindsay Jones (Original Music & Sound).
