Lombardi takes stage at Depot Theater
WESTPORT —The tales of Football’s treasured coach, Vince Lombardi comes to life in the performance of “Lombardi” at the Depot Theater, 6705 Main Street. Performances begin on Aug. 30 and continue through Sept. 15. Curtains rise on Fridays, Saturdays, Mondays at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 3 p.m. and Thursdays and Sundays at 5 p.m.
Football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers. Few people, however, know the real story of Vince Lombardi the man - his inspirations, his passions, and his ability to drive people to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Based on David Maraniss’ book When Pride Still Mattered – A Life of Vince Lombardi, this hit Broadway play explores Lombardi’s relationship with his wife, Marie, and three of his legendary players during a pivotal week in 1965. LOMBARDI is the perfect way to welcome the beautiful early Autumn of the Adirondacks - with a celebration of football, teamwork, and tradition!
