Al McGuire will be there.
Well, at least, Cotter Smith's version.
From the JS: Next month will mark the 30th anniversary of Al McGuire and Marquette University winning the NCAA basketball championship in Atlanta, and Al will return, sort of, to the Final Four and Atlanta.
The Final Four is in Atlanta again, and the Dick Enberg play "McGuire," featuring Milwaukee actor Cotter Smith, will be mounted for three performances during the NCAA finals weekend March 31 and April 1.
Enberg is the veteran sportscaster who teamed with McGuire on college basketball telecasts after McGuire retired. Enberg wrote a one-man play about his close friend and colleague. The show, with Smith portraying the coach, premiered in 2005.
Tickets for the Atlanta shows are $25 through the Woodruff Arts Center, (404) 733-5000. The show will be staged at the Alliance Theatre.
