Second Stage Theater has now confirmed five new productions for its forthcoming 2019-2020 season, including three plays at its Broadway home of the Hayes Theater, alongside two Off-Broadway world premieres (at the Tony Kiser Theater and McGinn/Cazale Theater).
Take Me Out
Second Stage Theater presents a revival of the Tony Award-winning "Best Play" Take Me Out, written by Richard Greenberg and directed by Scott Ellis.
Tickets will be on sale soon.
Take Me Out celebrates the personal and professional intricacies of America’s favorite pastime. When Darren Lemming, the star center fielder for the Empires, comes out of the closet, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.
