4 sports figures who belong on Broadway

June 18, 2012|RedEye

Knockout or punch line?

According to The Associated Press, Mike Tyson announced Monday that he will team up with director Spike Lee to bring his one-man show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," to Broadway for six shows starting July 31.

The show—a confessional on the highs and lows of Tyson's life—was a hit in Las Vegas. On that note, these sports figures could make it in New York, New York, too.

Lance Briggs

His affinity for comic books is well-known. Isn't it time he put on a costume and strutted onstage? Just stay away from "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," Lance. The Bears need you injury-free.

Starlin Castro

Audiences will be mesmerized by clips of the Cubs shortstop's miscues—including the ones that don't make it on the stat sheet. We'd call it "A Comedy of Errors," but it might be more tragic than funny.

Jim Cornelison

His voice—starting with his powerful renditions of the national anthem—should be heard outside Chicago. He could be singing "Happy Birthday" for all we care; just give this guy a microphone.

Tim Tebow

The N.Y. Jets quarterback is a shoe-in for the lead in"Jesus Christ Superstar."
