Vince: The Life & Times of Vince Lombardi

Saturday, August 23rd, 7 pm
Tickets: $10

This one man play is about the coach who took the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowl championships. As you listen to John Pinero perform as Vince Lombardi, you will see the one man show that so impressed NFL Films that they hired John Pinero to portray the iconic Green Bay coach in a year-long tribute to Lombardi. Veteran Los Angeles Times sportswriter Mike Downey wrote, “I know my program said Lombardi was being played by John Pinero, but I didn’t fall for that. That was Vince Lombardi up there on stage.”

As you listen to him perform, maybe you will not only get an idea of how Lombardi inspired his players, but you will catch a spark of zeal yourself.
