Encore Musicals will be performing Damn Yankees at the RiverPark Center. In this golden age classic, a frustrated middle-aged fan of the perennially losing Washington Senators sells his soul to become a baseball superstar, who leads his team in a quest to beat the Yankees in the World Series. But, when the young phenom starts missing the wife he left behind, the devil employs a dazzling temptress as a distraction. Based on The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, this golden-age musical introduced timeless tracks including, “Who’s Got the Pain?”, “Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, MO”, “Whatever Lola Wants,” and the show’s home run hit, “Heart.”
