Last Days of Summer
About Last Days of Summer
This beautiful tale of friendship, baseball, and the enduring bonds between fathers and sons will speak to all generations. Based on the bestselling novel by Steve Kluger, with music by Grammy winner Jason Howland and directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun, the heart-warming story is set in 1940’s Brooklyn and pulses with jazz music and big band sounds of the era. Joe Margolis and his young son open an old box of letters that transport Joe back to his youth—when Bar Mitzvah boy Joey and his best friend Craig are writing fan letters to their hero Charlie Banks, the star third baseman of the New York Giants. Amid the tumultuous events of World War II, they forge an unlikely friendship that might be the very thing they both need.
