ABOUT THE SHOW
The year is 1965, and Green Bay Packers football coach Vince Lombardi attempts to lead his team to the championship. The Wall Street Journal writes, “I know nothing about football, but Lombardi held my attention from start to finish. An extremely well crafted piece of intelligent theater.” Though football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few people know the real story of Lombardi the man: his inspirations, his passions, and his ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible.
