Throwback Thursday: Damn Yankees

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week’s #throwback features a black and white publicity photo from the musical “Damn Yankees” written by Richard Adler. This image was captured during the fall of 1964 at the Omaha Community Playhouse. This performance broke the old 9,200-plus attendance record at the Omaha Community Playhouse. The Omaha World-Herald called it “The finest damn musical ever.”

This image is published and owned by the Omaha Community Playhouse. This collection features images of the Playhouse and some of its performances. Some actors included in this collection are Henry Fonda, Jane Fonda, and Dorothy McGuire.

Check out this collection and many more on the Nebraska Memories archive.

The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see for more information
