A Most Confusing Article
The article contains information about the stage musical. Plus there is a mention of the tv movie. The info box is for the movie, but there is no information at all about the movie in this article. I searched for another article that might exist for the movie, under both "Damn Yankees (film)" and "Damn Yankees (movie)", but found nothing.
For the time being, I propose to:
- put in a new info box for the stage musical
- rewrite the article a bit to conform to the accepted article structure for Musicals (stage)
- add some appropriate material, if it exists, on the history/background of the musical
- put in a separate section on the movie and tv movie, using the image from the film info box.
A split of the movie and film sections can also be done, but I'd like to get this ship-shape first.
I can start this on July 12, unless someone has some time on their hands, or unless someone doesn't think this is a sensible plan.
(By the way, although I don't care to get involved in process, and I'm not a member of the group so I am aware that I have no say in the matter, but this article seems pretty much of a "stub" class to me--for the theatre part, that is.)

- Hello, Jean. As usual, I completely agree with your plan. The only things I don't agree with are 1. Yes, you ARE a member of the group! It makes me LOL that you think you aren't -- You've been working hard on musical theatre articles for a long time and have made as much of a contribution to the articles as anyone on Wikipedia; 2. I don't think it's a stub because it has a plot section (although it obviously needs expansion), a little production info, characters, an awards section and a beginning at some other things. With a musicals infobox, I think it will be a very solid "start", but of course it needs all the improvements that you discussed above. I added a few links that I hope will help you. -- Ssilvers 22:33, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
(Thanks for your kind words --I only meant that I'm not a member of the Musicals Project :))
I had a few moments so I started. The references, links, and a bit of movie section are already there--nice. I couldn't figure out what to do with the nice movie info box, so I did not put in the musicals info box just yet; the computer is off and so am I.JeanColumbia 09:12, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
- I made room for the musicals infobox. Please fix what I put in - I don't know anything about infoboxes. I hope you can get around to splitting off the film article soon, because I'm snowed under right now. Best regards, -- Ssilvers 03:39, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
A Broadway musical is currently playing from July 5 to July 27 2008 with Sean Hayes (Will & Grace), Jane Krakowski (Ally McBeal, 30 Rock), Cheyenne Jackson (from the musical Xanadu), and Randy Graff at New York City Center.

...is started. The musicals info box looks fine, will look for an image later today, and wil do the necessary link redirecting. I'll also see if I can find some history on this musical.JeanColumbia 09:48, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
- Hey, Jean. I thought you said this article was a stub? LOL! -- Ssilvers 20:45, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Emphasis on revival
I don't understand why the article's listing of songs is based on the 1994 revival. Wouldn't it better to to list the original, and then mark changes in either notation or a separate listing? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:00, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
