The musical “Damn Yankees” centers around Joe Boyd, a married man who happens to be more in love with baseball than his wife. Boyd makes a deal with the Devil — disguised as a slick salesman — and quickly sells his soul in exchange for youth and a chance to play baseball for his favorite team.

Directed by George Pinney, with musical direction by Terry LaBolt, “Damn Yankees” is a cross between the classic story “Faust” and America’s favorite pastime.

The musical premiered Wednesday at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre inside the Lee Norvelle Theatre & Drama Center. The play originally premiered on Broadway in 1956 and won seven Tony awards.
