Take Me Out on Broadway Background

First premiering on Broadway in 2002 Take Me Out is the story of a baseball team's rally towards a championship season and their struggles with off-the-field factors along the way. When the star center fielder of the team, Darren Lemming comes out of the closet, both the fans and players of the team reveal their own prejudice towards the situation. Darren has to overcome what it’s like to be a gay African American baseball player. On his journey, he struggles with hostile teammates, friends, and fans. Darren, his teammates, and fans must all come together to have a successful baseball season all while questioning tradition and loyalty to the sport and to the country.

What’s Take Me Out Like?

Broadway plays and musicals about sports often do very poorly on the Great White Way. There are a litany of fallen shows with solid sports themes that have met with great critical reception, but have been box office disasters. This show attempts to use prejudice against race and sexuality as its main theme and may well do better in the box office as it speaks to topics that are experienced every day in the gay and black communities. To be black and gay has to be a great challenge, but to be playing in a sport that is inherently prejudice is beyond comparison.

Is Take Me Out Good for Kids?

The show is recommended for children ages 13 and older.
