It’s “play ball” time Friday, June 30 at Penguin Repertory Theatre, Crickettown Road in Stony Point. Ty Cobb steps up to bat in the return of the play “Cobb” to the gutsiest little theatre off Broadway. The well-traveled story about Cobb, who was said to be the meanest man in baseball, has been played before at Penguin, (would you believe in 1955?). The play was directed by art director Joe Brancato who will also direct this run of “Cobb” as well. Come and see how to play ball on stage. Contact penguinrep.org or call 845-786-2873.
