Magic Johnson Larry Bird

NEW YORK — The producers and playwright behind the Broadway play “Lombardi” aren’t done with sports just yet.

They’re planning to go from football to basketball with “Magic/Bird,” a new play that will chronicle the lives of Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

“Lombardi” playwright Eric Simonson’s script will trace the two basketball stars’ rivalry and friendship from their days as rookies in the NBA to the Olympic Dream Team.

The six-character play is scheduled to debut on Broadway in 2012.

Like “Lombardi,” which benefited from endorsement by the National Football League, the new play about Bird and Magic will be produced in association with the National Basketball Association.

Producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo say Johnson and Bird will participate in the creative process.
