I decided to start this new thread for broadway play info for That Championshp Season.

RIALTO CHATTER: Kiefer Sutherland To Join That Championship Season?

Actor Kiefer Sutherland has recently spoken out about his interest in coming back to the stage.


German TV channel Sky quotes Sutherland as stating "I will go back on stage soon in the new Broadway version of the 1972 play "That Championship Season."


On October 18th Broadwayworld reported that Tony Award nominee Gregory Mosher is set to direct the upcoming Broadway revival of Jason Miller's That Championship Season. Rehearsals are set to begin in January of 2011.


THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is a drama about four men who reunite with their high school basketball coach for a 20th anniversary celebration of their state championship basketball game.


Twenty years since their ultimate victory, the former players--now an incumbent Mayor, a junior high school principal, a rich playboy entrepreneur and an alcoholic writer-- still rely on their coach for pep talks and guidance. During what may be their last reunion, secrets are revealed which could shatter their lives forever.


The first production of CHAMPIONSHIP was developed at The Public Theater and moved to Broadway thereafter in 1972. That production starred Charles Durning, Paul Sorvino, Richard A. Dysart, Walter McGinn, and Michael McGuire.

Gregory Mosher, who received a 2010 Tony nomination for his direction of the revival of A View from the Bridge, will helm an upcoming Broadway revival of Jason Miller's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning That Championship Season.

Rehearsals will begin in January 2011, according to a casting notice.

Producers are Frederick Zollo & Robert Cole, Shubert Organization, Shelter Island Enterprises.

An earlier report in the New York Post said that Tony-winning actor Liev Schreiber, who co-starred in Mosher's A View From the Bridge, would likely be part of the cast.

That Championship Season premiered at the Public Theater on May 2, 1972, starring Charles Durning, Richard A. Dysart, Walter McGinn, Michael McGuire and Paul Sorvino, under the direction of A.J. Antoon. The production, with the original cast intact, transferred to Broadway's Booth Theatre on Sept. 11, 1972, and ran through April 1974. Playwright Miller later directed the 1983 film.

According to previous press notes, "That Championship Season takes place at a reunion of a high school basketball coach, now retired, and four members of the team that he guided to the state championship 20 years earlier. As the evening progresses, secrets are revealed, loyalties tested and the foundation of their long-held dreams is found to be fraudulent."

No official announcement about a Broadway revival has been announced.

Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Noth, Brian Cox & More to Star in Broadway Revival of That Championship Season

Kiefer Sutherland is set to make his Broadway debut alongside stage vets Chris Noth and Brian Cox in a revival of Jason Miller’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play That Championship Season. Rounding out the cast will be comic actor Jim Gaffigan and playwright Miller's son, Jason Patric. Directed by Gregory Mosher,, the play will open in March 2011 at a Shubert theater to be announced. (An erroneous report from Deadline.com had indicated that Liev Schreiber would appear in the play.)

That Championship Season centers on a group of former high school basketball stars who return home for a reunion 20 years after they won the state championship. Cox will play the team’s coach; the four teammates will be played by Sutherland (James Daley), Gaffigan (George Sitkowski), Noth (Phil Romano) and Patric (Tom Daley).

The play began life at the Public Theater, where it opened on May 2, 1972. Transferring to Broadway’s Booth Theatre in September 1972, it ran for 700 performances and won both the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize. The cast included Charles Durning as Sitkowski, Richard Dysart as Coach, Michael McGuire as James Daley, plus Walter McGinn as Tom Daley and Paul Sorvino in a Tony-nominated performance as Phil Romano. That Championship Season was revived at Second Stage in 1999. No other casting for the Broadway production has been announced.

Sutherland is best known for his Golden Globe-winning run as Jack Bauer in TV’s 24 and appeared onstage opposite his mother, Shirley Douglas, in The Glass Menagerie at the National Arts Centre. Cox has appeared on Broadway in Rock ‘n’ Roll, Art and Strange Interlude. Noth, known for his starring roles in TV's The Good Wife and Sex and the City, most recently appeared in the off-Broadway production of Farragut North. Patric played Brick opposite Ashley Judd in the Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and has appeared onstage in Bash, Beirut and Out of Gas, among others. Gaffigan is well known as the star of Comedy Central specials and as a comic actor and writer.

That Championship Season will be produced on Broadway by Robert Cole, Frederick Zollo and the Shubert Organization, who joined forced on last season's A Steady Rain.
