Jason Miller's Pulitzer Prize Winning Play Returns To Broadway!

That Championship Season tickets are selling now for Broadway previews. With an official opening day scheduled for March 6, 2011 the production began previews on February 9. The surprise play is playing a limited engagement set to close on May 29, 2011 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater. The story tells of four Pennsylvania state championship players who unite with their coach on the anniversary of their amazing win. The men re-live their emotions of the event while revisiting their youth. The show is getting some impressive reviews from New York's toughest critics. This is a great surprise production for the 2011 Broadway season which delivers hard-hitting writing and relevant concept devices.

That Championship Season tickets delivers savage humor, witty dialogue and probes much deeper into the characters than one might expect. From the outside, it would appear to be a new play following the latest Broadway sports inspiration stories such as "Lombardi," but this play delves deep into the grudges each of the once confident players hold onto. The seemingly exuberant starting line-up lives have not turned out how they expected some 20 years after their victory. The members reunite with their terminally ill coach seeking his guidance once again, not on the court but in the game of life. The story is set in 1972 at the coach's home in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The middle-aged men being to learn that the guidance, lessons and pep talks that coach was giving seem shallow. The words they took to heart and based their lives on have now become seemingly un inspirational and deceitful. The men begin to realize that their illusions of their beloved coach were misinterpreted and the man they put so much trust in for guidance in their lives is not who they conjured him to be.

That Championship Season tickets have sold for both Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. The play is written by American playwright and actor Jason Miller. He received the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his work. Mr. Miller later went on to become the Artistic Director of the Scranton Public Theatre in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He is most recognized for his role in the popular 1973 horror film " The Exorcist" in which he played Father Damien Karras. Miller was born and raised in Long Island City, Queens until his family moved to Scranton, PA.
