Whatever Lola Wants . . .

Dierker musical to have 2 free readings | - Houston Chronicle: "While most people know Larry Dierker as a former Houston Astros pitcher and manager and two-time All-Star, he's also (as most may not know), the author of a new musical, his first.

Drawing on his four decades in baseball, Dierker has written the book and lyrics for Old Stories, which depicts the fictitious 1970 Washington Capitols and their star right fielder Arthur 'King' Cole. While his team is making a run for the National League pennant, Cole is fielding problems with a new love and declining career.

Houston pianist/composer Paul English has written the music."
