Event Description

Santa Monica Playhouse in association with The Mathewson Foundation presents the Smash Hit Off-Broadway Show direct from Times Square!

“A perfect pitch! Pure Virtuosity!” Clive Barnes, NEW YORK POST

Santa Monica Playhouse is delighted and proud to welcome Eddie Frierson’s MATTY back to our boards for two shows only. Baseball fan or not, you definitely want to see this show.

“It’s 100% true that you don’t have to be a baseball fan to be completely engaged by Eddie Frierson’s performance. He leaves the audience with a real appreciation of Christy Mathewson, and the place and time in which he was an authentic hero. On the other hand, if you are a baseball fan, you will be amazed at how much you didn’t know about “Matty,” his contemporaries, and the dramatic baseball events of their time.” — Bob Costas, NBC

“A magnificent trip back in time! I recommend it highly!” — Keith Olbermann, ESPN

“One of the Year’s Ten Best Plays! Whether you are a baseball fan or not, Eddie Frierson’s play, “MATTY: An Evening With Christy Mathewson,” is a superb theatrical experience. MATTY hits a home run! — National Public Radio (NPR)

”Remarkable! This show is as memorable as an exciting World Series game and it wakes up the echoes about why we love baseball. When MATTY comes to your town don’t miss it! A great way to get hooked on baseball again!” USA TODAY

“Charming! Amusing! Great!” Wilborn Hampton, The New York Times
