Producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Krimser say the play by Eric Simonson will open during the fall of 2010. The cast, director and opening date have yet to be announced.
Simonson's play is based on David Maraniss' best-selling book "When Pride Mattered." Lombardi coached the Packers from 1959-67, winning five league championships in nine years.
He died in 1970 at the age of 57.
