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 opens tonight with an 8 p.m. performance at the Next Act Theatre.


Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
