“Lombardi” opens at the Racine Theatre Guild on October 19, and runs for three weekends through November 4. I am playing legendary Green Bay Packers halfback Paul Hornung. He was known to the public as The Golden Boy, but his teammates referred to him as Horn or Goat. A member of the Pro Football and Packers Hall of Fames, he set records that still stand today.
This is a challenging role, as I’ve never played a non-fictional character before. The play itself is fiction, following the exploits of crack reporter Mike McCormick as he follows the 1965 Packers in an effort to write a piece on the larger than life Vince Lombardi.
What attracted me to this play was the fact that it will be seen by a lot of people who might not be regular theater fans, and I’m excited by the idea of performing for a new audience.

If you see the show, feel free to come down to the Green Room afterwards and say hi!
