While it's not strange to see professional athletes star in play productions, I'm pretty sure that few have ever made it to Broadway like former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan.

it really was an amazing thing," the former football player said after
the show. "To see these performers who do it every day — eight or nine
times a week — is really amazing. I take my hat off to them."
