What Is the Story of Lombardi?
Lombardi tells the story of legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi and his wife Marie. The play takes place mostly in November of 1965 when a young journalist from New York City, Michael McCormick, comes to live with the Lombardi family in order to write a newspaper article about the man. The pair from a close but tense relationship as McCormick dives into the psyche of this motivated, but agitated sports hero. He also tries to penetrate the minds of Lombardi’s tough Green Bay players and in turn learns about his own life goals.

"A good one for the guys. It is both tasty and filling. 'Lombardi' held my attention from start to finish, and when it was over, I went home feeling properly entertained."
