Kirmser, Ponturo Plan Broadway Production Based On Yankees
Producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo today announced the commission of their latest sports-themed Broadway play, a production inspired by the Yankees. The as-yet-untitled project is to be completed in collaboration with the club and MLB. It will be the third such play produced by Kirmser and Ponturo, following "Lombardi" and "Magic/Bird" (Kirmser Ponturo Group). "Lombardi" and "Magic/Bird" were written by Eric Simonson, but "no playwright is officially attached" to the new project (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 11/15).
