Football and Footlights

"Confidence is contagious," goes one of Vince Lombardi's many famous quotes. "So is lack of confidence." The legendary football coach and creepily obsessive Catholic really believed that, which may be why, even today, the name Lombardi is synonymous with athletic success -- even though Lombardi was not, as it happens, the NFL's winningest coach. Doesn't matter. He sounded like a winner, made his players believe they were winners, and somehow that was enough to seal his reputation forever. Lombardi, which opened last year in Manhattan, follows the coach through a week in the 1965 season as he struggles to put the Packers through the championship and evade a journalist dispatched from Look magazine. Lombardi runs through December 4 at Mosaic Theatre (12200 W. Broward Blvd., at American Heritage), and tickets cost $12 to $36. Visit for pricing info.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 10. Continues through Dec. 4, 2011
