“Batter up! Take Me Out, Richard Greenberg’s Tony-winning play about a Major League Baseball player who comes out of the closet, will be revived on Broadway as part of Second Stage’s 2019-2020 season. The new production will be joined by two more Broadway plays at the Hayes Theater, in addition to three off-Broadway world premieres produced by the not-for-profit.
This staging of Take Me Out will mark the first Broadway revival of Greenberg’s groundbreaking 2003 play, which follows Darren Lemming, star center fielder for the Empires, who reveals he is gay and faces a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties and the price of victory. Scott Ellis will direct the revival, set to begin previews on March 31, 2020 and open on April 23. Casting will be announced at a later date.”
So, any casting dreams? I think Alfredo Narciso would be excellent in one of the parts.
