Tuesday, December 24, 2013 ‘Bronx Bombers’ tells Yankees’ tale on Broadway

The play, which had a trial run off Broadway, follows Yankees legend Berra and his wife Carmen through a century of the team’s trials and triumphs, transforming the audience and perhaps rustling a conjured cornstalk or two from “Field of Dreams.” The Berras, fittingly, are portrayed by a real-life married couple: Peter Scolari and Tracy Shayne.

The cast also includes Francois Battiste (Reggie Jackson/Elston Howard), Chris Henry Coffey (Joe DiMaggio), Bill Dawes (Mickey Mantle/Thurman Munson), Christopher Jackson (Derek Jeter), John Wernke (Lou Gehrig) and C.J. Wilson (Babe Ruth). Because baseball and theater are interwoven here, it is worth noting that this is the C.J. Wilson who just portrayed Herr Zeller on “Sound of Music Live” and not the C.J. Wilson who pitches for the Angels.

Is there a scene where Scolari rubs his ballsack on coldcuts?
