Casa Manana

Casa Manana's President and Executive Producer Denton Yockey announced today that Richard Kind will replace Lou Diamond Phillips in the upcoming production of Damn Yankees, August 12 - 17, 2008 at Casa Manana Theatre.

"Due to his busy professional career, our good friend Lou Diamond Phillips is no longer available to perform in this special engagement," states Yockey. "Lou was really looking forward to his starring role in our production, and hopes to return to Fort Worth again soon."

Audiences will recognize Kind from his work on the hit comedies Mad About You and Spin City. In addition to his work on television, he has also starred in numerous shows on stage including the Broadway productions of The Producers and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name a few.

"We are pleased to announce that Richard Kind, star of stage and screen, has agreed to perform the role of 'Applegate' in our upcoming production," states Yockey. "Richard brings a sense of gleeful silliness to the role of the devil. We are looking forward to his performance."

Damn Yankees is a devilishly clever musical comedy! A middle aged man finds himself endlessly frustrated that his beloved baseball team is constantly thwarted by the New York Yankees. In desperation, he sells his soul to the Devil (Richard Kind) for a chance to lead his team to victory in the pennant race against those damn Yankees. Though his dreams of success and fame get closer every day, he finds himself yearning more and more for the life, and the wife, he left behind. Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Damn Yankees features the classic songs, "Heart," "Two Lost Souls," "Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, MO," "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets," and "Those Were The Good Old Days."

Performance dates: Tuesday, August 12 at 7:30 p.m.; Wednesday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, August 15 at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday, August 16 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday, August 17 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
