Exit Laughing: Script-In-Hand
Sunday, May 11, 2014

Two American originals—baseball and musical comedy—meet in this 1955 fantasy which updates the Faustian legend to the modern American baseball diamond. An aging baseball fan sells his soul to the devil in return for newfound youth and the batting skills to lead his home team to victory over the hated New York Yankees. Among the hit tunes from this Tony-winning Best Musical are “(You Gotta Have) Heart” and “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets.”

The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre performs its eighth season of Script-in-Hand – a series of classic comedies called Exit Laughing.

Sponsored by Country Club Bank with additional support provided by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

The receptions for members of the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library that follow each performance are provided by Cosentino’s Market. You may join the Friends during any of the events and attend the reception the day you sign up.
