Editorial Reviews

Review

Instead of a 'Give 'Em Hell Harry' type exercise in a feel-good historical hagiography, Mr. Simonson has given us an extremely well-crafted piece of intelligent theatre, a regular-guy equivalent of Frost/Nixon. ...I know nothing about football and less about the Green Bay Packers, but "Lombardi" held my attention from start to finish. --The Wall Street Journal

The real victory of "Lombardi" is this: Football fans reared on NFL highlights of the legendary Green Bay Packers coach will leave the play fulfilled, while those who don't know Vince Lombardi from Carole Lombard will also be pleased...Even if you never cared about football, you'll enjoy "Lombardi." And that really is everything. --New York Post

With Eric Simonson's "Lombardi", a solidly written play uplifted by Thomas Kail's distinguished direction, and performed by an excellent company. Football might finally start getting some respect from show people. If you know who Vince Lombardi is, the play is most likely exactly what you'd expect it to be: a portrait of a decent, honorable figure who earns the devotion of this players by tough-loving them into the best they're capable of being. If you don't know who he is, you can simply disregard the scattered names from the past and sprinklings of jargon, and "Lombardi" stands as self-explantory. --Broadwayworld.com

Hard hitting yet poignant account of time Lombardi coached the Green Bay Packers. I am from Wisconsin and definitely felt nostalgic reading this script. I am hoping to some day direct this show for our area community theatre. It should be a real crowd pleaser for local audiences.
