NEW YORK (AP) — A new play about the New York Yankees will star "The Sopranos" star Joe Pantoliano as Yogi Berra, Francois Battiste as Reggie Jackson, Chris Henry Coffey as Joe DiMaggio, Christopher Jackson as Derek Jeter and Bill Dawes as Mickey Mantle.

"Bronx Bombers" will make its world premiere on Sept. 17 at Primary Stages at The Duke theater on 42nd Street. It's conceived by Fran Kirmser, commissioned by Tony Ponturo, and written and directed by Eric Simonson, the team that put together Broadway's "Lombardi" and "Magic/Bird."

Producers said Thursday the play will examine "how baseball's most storied franchise has always remained focused on maintaining a great team, even when dealing with some of the game's most iconic and tempestuous personalities."

Casting for Babe Ruth and Carmen Berra will be revealed later.
