Written by Richard Greenberg and winner of the 2003 Tony Award for Best Play, Take Me Out tells the story of the New York Empires and their struggling baseball season after their star player casually makes the public announcement that he is gay. "Richard Greenberg's soliloquy on why baseball is greater than democracy is a rhapsody that no lover of the sport or of theater should miss." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times.
