Carson Kressley Returns to the Playhouse


Hot off his run in “Dancing with the Stars”, Emmy Award winning television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer, Carson Kressley will return to the Ogunquit Playhouse in the 2012 production of “Damn Yankees: The Boston Red Sox version,” on stage July 25 through August 18. This summer the Ogunquit Playhouse will celebrate its 80th anniversary of producing award-winning theater in Southern Maine. Kressley was last seen at the Ogunquit Playhouse in his critically acclaimed performance as Man in Chair during the 2010 run of “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
In “Damn Yankees”, Kressley will play Mr. Applegate in the Faustian baseball musical that won seven Tony awards when it opened on Broadway 56 years ago. In the new Ogunquit Playhouse production, die-hard Red Sox fan Joe Boyd offers his soul to this devil in return for “one long-ball hitter”. Applegate uses his power to turn Joe into a young, strong, handsome, long-ball hitter with supernatural athletic abilities. As the team begins to win, Joe looks for a loophole to get out of the deal. This devilish dealmaker pulls out all the stops, most notably, the sizzling hot temptress Lola.
Kressley is bound to bring the house down with his antics!
