I gave Simonson’s two previous plays on Broadway tepid reviews, and it wasn’t surprising that both lived very short stage lives on Broadway. I can’t imagine Bronx Bombers being much different. The plot is wildly inconsistent. The message is convoluted. The pace is uneven.
Once you’ve moved beyond the initial introductory chapters, the book is an entertaining page-turner and written with the exuberance of someone eager to share his passion. If you love college basketball, Breslin’s book is certainly worth a look.
