Focus on Entertainment for Sept. 6 - 12

Football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers. Few people, however, know the real story of Vince Lombardi the man - his inspirations, his passions, and his ability to drive people to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Based on David Maraniss’ book When Pride Still Mattered – A Life of Vince Lombardi, this hit Broadway play explores Lombardi’s relationship with his wife, Marie, and three of his legendary players during a pivotal week in 1965. LOMBARDI is the perfect way to welcome the beautiful early Autumn of the Adirondacks - with a celebration of football, teamwork, and tradition!

Tickets are $29 and the first Monday night production is name-your-own-price-night. To reserve tickets call 962-8680.
