Baseball's Lou Gehrig, the legendary New York Yankee, will live again in A Lucky Life - a new play at the Amelia Musical Playhouse.
Baseball’s immortal Lou Gehrig is about to make an appearance in Florida.

Broadway singer/actor, Brandon Dahlquist, who recently performed the character of Gehrig in Broadway’s Bronx Bombers, gets to expand the Gehrig role in this new dramatic production. New York Times/Associated Press scribe, Pete Durantine, has penned the play and packed it with plenty of lively stories of the glorious Yankee days when Gehrig and Babe Ruth were the core of the Yankees incredible lineup, including the 1927 Murderers’ Row. Director Richard Scanlon added, “This performance exudes an abundance of good humor and graciousness, just like Gehrig himself, with just a touch of warmth and heroic heart that made him a timeless hero.”
