The legendary coach comes home to Wisconsin in this post-Broadway Regional Premiere Production featuring Resident Acting Company member Lee E. Ernst as the iconic Lombardi. Although football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man – his inspirations, his passions and his ability to drive people to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Exploring his relationship with his wife, Marie, and three of his legendary players – Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor and Dave Robinson – this family-friendly tribute takes you into the life and times of one of America’s most inspirational and mercurial personalities.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours with one intermission
