About The Event
Based on Bill Madden’s best selling book “Steinbrenner - The Last Lion of Baseball”, “Steinbrenner!” was conceived as an adaptation by Pulitzer Prize Award winning sports and features writer Ira Berkow and Madden in 2011.
After two readings in 2013 and 2014 sponsored by Roundabout Theater Company, Brian Spector (Come From Away, The Woodsman) of Keaka Productions was brought on board as Executive Producer. A staged reading took place in August 2015 at Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY, and a table reading was held in September 2017 at Syracuse University Fisher Center in New York City.
Since the last reading, the play has undergone extensive rewriting at the hands of the writers and director Heidi Mueller Smith to incorporate the feedback received. Their efforts have culminated in in a final industry reading in April featuring the talents of Richard Poe (George Steinbrenner) Zach Grenier (Gabe Paul) Bilgin Turker (Elaine Kaufman) Joel Van Liew (Billy Martin) Jim Anderson (Thurman Munson) Akron Watson (Reggie Jackson) Jennean Farmer (Doris) and Mark Coffin (Callers). Also featured are voice overs by sports radio legends Mike Francesa and Chris "Mad Dog" Russo.
