That Championship Season Joins This One
A previously announced Broadway revival of Jason Miller's That Championship Season is officially joining the 2010-2011 Broadway season. It has booked the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, where current hit Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson will end its run in January, for a March opening. The production will star Kiefer Sutherland and Chris Noth. The play focuses on a group of high school basketball stars on the occasion of their 20th reunion after having won the state championship. The original run in 1972 won both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
