This Thursday, August 30 at 11:30am, Fault Line Theatre will be facing off against Davenport Theatricals in the Broadway Show League Softball Championships!
Since 1955, the Broadway Show League has become a summer tradition that brings together the Broadway and Off-Broadway community every Thursday on the Heckscher Fields in Central Park. This year we were proud to sponsor the first ever team comprised entirely of folks from the downtown and independent theatre communities. THE DOWNTOWNERS have gone on to defeat the likes of The Lion King, The Blue Man Group, Book of Mormon, and Dear Evan Hansen en route to the finals.
Here's how to works: the playoff format is called Double Elimination, meaning you have to lose 2 games to be knocked out. We lost our first playoff game, but have gone undefeated since. Davenport Theatricals has yet to lose. This means at 11:30am we will be playing a 9 inning game. If we win this, we have to defeat them one more time in a do-or-die 7 inning game. If we lose that first game though, it's all over. No second game.
SO COME CHEER ON THE DOWNTOWNERS AT 11:30am, THIS THURSDAY, AUGUST 30. We will be playing on Heckscher Field 5, just inside the park at Central Park West and 63rd Street.
