BOYS OF SUMMER & FALL
Yankees great Derek Jeter has shut down for the season, but he’ll be back in the game Off-Broadway on Tuesday in “Bronx Bombers.”
In Eric Simonson’s play, the pinstripers’ shortstop is joined by past legends like Joe DiMaggio and Babe Ruth. Coach Yogi Berra searches for inspiration and greatness at a pivotal time in the club’s history.
“In the Heights” alum Christopher Jackson plays Jeter and the diamond setting fits. “Baseball was my passion,” he says. “I’d be playing ball if I wasn’t an actor.”
Tuesday through Oct. 19 at the Duke on 42nd St. $70 at (646) 223-3010.
