Broadway

Words with Producers and Director of Bronx Bombers

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

Bob Ahrens

 

Bronx Bombers is the latest sports drama from producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo, the team responsible for 2012’s Magic/Bird and 2011’s Lombardi. 

I got a chance to interview the producers, director, and entire cast in December at Bronx Bombers media day. 

This is the first of four articles highlighting different interviews from that day in preparation for the play’s opening night.

Dan Lauria: From Lombardi to Red Ryder

Most people know Dan Lauria as the father in the iconic family drama “The Wonder Years,” the Fred Savage star vehicle. More recently, though, especially for New Yorkers as Dan mentions in our interview, he is now recognized quite handily as Vince Lombardi, for his portrayal in the Broadway hit two years ago.
