Broadway theatergoers, much like football fans, love watching players hone their crafts, revel in the unpredictable outcomes of a live event, and throw beer at stagehands when they make bad calls. Find the point where the gridiron meets the proscenium arch with today's Groupon: for $66, you get one ticket to see Lombardi at the Circle in the Square Theatre in Midtown (a $122.50 value).
Directed by Tony nominee Thomas Kail and written for the stage by Oscar winner Eric Simonson, Lombardi tells the theatrical tale of Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi, who led the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowl wins and three World's Best Grandpa coffee mugs. The cast stars Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years) in the title role and two-time Emmy winner Judith Light as Lombardi's wife. In honor of the play, Circle in the Square has transformed its lobby into a shrine to America's pigskinned pastime, with a museum-quality installation of memorabilia from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including signed balls from the 1965 World Championship and Super Bowl I, in addition to other memorabilia.

- Football fans reared on NFL highlights of the legendary Green Bay Packers coach will leave the play fulfilled, while those who don't know Vince Lombardi from Carole Lombard will also be pleased. – Mike Vaccaro, New York Post
- I know nothing about football and less about the Green Bay Packers, but "Lombardi" held my attention from start to finish, and when it was over, I went home feeling properly entertained. – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
