Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Noth to star in Broadway revival of 'That Championship Season'

There have been countless movies inspired by sports.

But not so many plays.

"That Championship Season" focuses on four former hoops players who reunite with their high school coach 20 years after winning the state title. It easily ranks as one of the best productions about athletes —albeit former ones — to ever enjoy a run on Broadway.

Authored by Jason Miller, the critically acclaimed "That Championship Season" won the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer for Best Drama in 1973.

According to a recent report, it will soon receive a big star revival — one I would love to see.

Read "Kiefer Sutherland (pictured), Chris Noth head to Broadway," published by The Herald Nov. 2.

Here's the official trailer from the 1982 movie of the same name. Directed and scripted by Miller, it features Robert Mitchum, Martin Sheen, Bruce Dern, Paul Sorvino and Stacey Keach
