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.
