George M. Steinbrenner III

Producer
( b. Jul 04, 1930 Rocky River, Ohio, USA - d. Jul 13, 2010 Tampa, Florida, USA ) Male
George Steinbrenner was the famed owner of the New York Yankees. Along with his seven World Series trophies and 11 AL pennants, Steinbrenner had another title under his belt, he was a Tony nominee.

It began with a working relationship with James Nederlander in the '60s. Steinbrenner and Nederlander produced several road-show productions, including Funny Girl and On a Clear Day. In 1967, they produced The Ninety Day Mistress on Broadway. It ran for only 24 performances, but they had better luck with their involvement in the 1970 Tony winner, Applause.

In a 1977 issue of Sports Illustrated, Nederlander was quoted as saying, "If George were in the theater exclusively, he'd be another Mike Todd or Ziegfeld." Steinbrenner's involvement in the theatre ended in 1988 with Legs Diamond.
