Previews begin tonight for X’s and O’s, the exciting new production that explores the highs and lows of America’s passion for football.

Based on real interviews with players, fans, and medical insiders, X’s and O’s celebrates the game while fearlessly tackling what happens when our love for the sport comes head-to-head with football’s more traumatic effects.
