Book by Douglass Wallop and George Abbott, Music and Lyrics by Jerry Ross and Richard Adler
Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life that he's left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series. This wicked, musical comedy is light, fast-paced and devilishly clever. A homerun hit, featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor.
