LombardiLOMBARDI

By Eric Simonson
Directed by Gregg T. Daniel


Based on the book When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss. We follow Green Bay Packers coach Lombardi through a week in the 1965 season, as he attempts to lead his team to the championship. A “Look Magazine” reporter wants to “find out what makes Lombardi win” and spends a week with him that ultimately changes the writer’s life. This play is centered around an icon in American football, but at its core is a minefield of humanity; teaching, fathers & sons, facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, what makes a good leader and ultimately how the words we say to one another can inspire and change us.
