America's favorite pastime meets the Broadway stage in Damn Yankees, Adler and Ross' 1955 musical hit. Washington Senators fan Joe Boyd wishes his team had a great hitter, and, in a Faustian deal with the devil (and the devil's assistant, Lola), becomes the team's savior—until he has second thoughts and tries to return to his previous life. The action is propelled by great songs such as "You Gotta Have Heart" and "Whatever Lola Wants." Think you already know Damn Yankees?
