GLASGOW — The popular response to Kentucky Repertory Theatre’s new production of “Lombardi” has resulted in Director Ken Hailey’s decision to extend the run of the play through an extra weekend. Instead of ending on July 22, the play will now continue through the weekend of July 27, 28, and 29.

“Lombardi” is a new American play by Academy Award winner Eric Simonson and based on the best-selling biography, “When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dan Maraniss.

This original work brings the audience into the life and times of one of America’s most inspirational and mercurial personalities, Hall of Fame football coach, Vince Lombardi.

Popular reaction to this play has been very strong. The theater company is extending performances an extra week, allowing audiences more opportunities to see the production.
