After legendary football coach Vince Lombardi built the Green Bay Packers from Western Conference nonentities into national champions in 1961 and '62, the team came in third in each of the following two years. In Lombardi, it's November 1965, a high-stress time, as the Packers are poised for another championship run. A greenhorn reporter from Look magazine is a not entirely welcome guest in the coach's home, working on a piece about what makes Lombardi win. In Eric Simonson's biographical drama, the writer gets a story—but not the one he expected. Charlie Brady directs David Henderson in this Theatre Raleigh production. —Byron Woods
