I just received a wonderful email from someone who was kind enough to pass on a friend's reaction after seeing Ernie. While he was, admittedly, unsure at first that the story of Ernie Harwell could carry a play on its own, he certainly felt differently after seeing it. It was, for him, "a nostalgic look at my youth with baseball...[and]... with Ernie as the narrator. You'd have to say it was the golden age of baseball when we'd never heard of steroids, dui's and spoiled gazillionaire athletes who could care less about fans and even winning."
Have you seen the play? What did you think?
