DIRECTORS NOTES

   
Yogi Berra was a player for the New York Yankees in the 1940s - 1960s.  He was the manager in the 1980s until he had an argument with George Steinbrenner (the team owner) and was fired.  For the next fourteen years Yogi stayed away from his beloved Yankee Stadium.  This play takes place, in the clubhouse, on July 19, 1999 when he returns to throw out the first ball.

Yogi is as well known for his colourful use of the English language as he is for his exceptional athletic abilities.  Many of his phrases have become accepted terminology, especially "It ain't over till it's over".

It has been a delight to recreate this iconic figure.  I hope you learn to love and admire this gentleman as much as I have.
