The Next Act Theatre attempts to capture the life of a legend in its latest production, Lombardi: The Only Thing, a biographical play about the seminal Green Bay Packers coach. Revised by playwright Eric Simonson, the play ranges from comedic and dramatic to factual and fantastic. Set in a crucial time for the coach, it’s mostly realistic, but it also features an imagined conversation between Lombardi, his father and JFK, among others. In order to make Lombardi clearer to audiences, these imagined characters were integrated in a way that illustrates Lombardi's internal crisis prior to the string of championships that would come to define him. The play continues its run this evening with a 2 p.m. performance at the Off Broadway Theatre.

Poll

Wisconsin has one of the most gerrymandered legislative district maps in the country. Would you support a system where legislative district lines were drawn by a nonpartisan commission, similar to the system in place in Iowa?
