That Championship Season is a 1972 play by Jason Miller.
Gregory Mosher will direct a revival of the play on Broadway at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre. Previews will begin on February 9, 2011, and the show will official open on March 6. It will star Brian Cox as Coach, Jim Gaffigan as George Sikowski, Chris Noth as Phil Romano, Jason Patric as Tom Daley and Kiefer Sutherland as James Daley. It will play a limited engagement until May 29, 2011.
From its earliest productions, That Championship Season was widely praised by critics, though a few dissenters had problems with certain aspects of the play. Those who like the play compliment its humor, dialogue, and characters. Reviewing the Broadway production, Clive Barnes of the New York Times writes, "Mr. Miller has a perfect ear and instinct for the rough and tumble profanity of locker-room humor. The coarsely elegant gibes go along with Mr. Miller’s indictment of a society, which opens with an ironic playing of the National Anthem and then lacerates the sickness of small-town America full of bigotry, double-dealing, racism and hate."
