Sports Illustrated Applauds Lauria & Company
Broadway’s Lombardi is featured in this week’s Super Bowl Preview issue of Sports Illustrated:
“When Lombardi opened on Broadway in the fall, no one thought a sports-infused drama about a long-dead football coach would be the only new play to last the season. But the production, which has grossed $4.9 million, has extended its run through June 19, even as 11 other new productions have closed. Lombardi’s success, jump-started by a marketing effort aimed beyond the traditional theatergoer and bolstered by the Packers’ Super Bowl run, has alerted Broadway to a previously untargeted audience: passionate sports fans. “It’s bringing new people to the theater,” says Lombardi producer Tony Ponturo.”
