A few years ago the play Lombardi appeared on Broadway in New York City, which was a performance about the life of Green Bay Packers legendary head coach Vince Lombardi. Next week, patrons will be able to see two living Packers players make their Broadway debuts.
Green Bay wide receiver Randall Cobb and former Packers running back Ahman Green will appear on stage during the Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages. Cobb will appear during Tuesday night’s show while Green will follow on Saturday, Feb. 1. Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell will also make an appearance during Wednesday’s show.
Broadway has stated the reason for NFL players showing up during the performance is all part of the weeklong festivities leading up to the Super Bowl, which will be played at Met Life Stadium on Feb. 2. They are calling it the Broadway Blitz as more current and former football players will join the list.
New York is going to be jam-packed full of enthusiastic fans who will be looking forward to the world’s most exciting sporting event. Therefore, the celebration will start at the beginning of next week.
I’m not exactly sure if Cobb or Green has any experience on stage. There also isn’t any information regarding whether the players will actually sing along with tunes that include “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Here I Go Again” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” However, I have to imagine, and really hoping, that will be the case.
