As Bette Davis uttered in All About Eve, “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”  That sentiment can be shared with Joshua Ravetch‘s One November Yankee, the latest Off-Broadway offering at 59E59 Street Theaters.

Some seasons of the Emmy-winning show did much better than others and stand out in our heads all this time later as ones that we want to watch again while others we wish never existed.
