Iconic NBA Images by Legendary Sports Photographer to Be Featured in "Magic/Bird" Broadway Show

Photographer Andrew D. Bernstein's Broadway Photo Debut -- Magic/Bird -- Opening 4/11/12 (April 03, 2012)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/03/12 -- "Magic/Bird," a Broadway play based on the rivalry and ultimate friendship of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, will feature iconic photos of the Hall of Famers taken by legendary sports photographer Andrew D. Bernstein.

"Magic/Bird," opening April 11, 2012 at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway, will include Bernstein's photos, which can be seen on the Playbill, website (http://www.magicbirdbroadway.com), and marquee at the theater, located at 220 West 48th Street in New York. Bernstein will attend the play opening.

"This play is the first time my work will be featured on Broadway and it's a true honor," says photographer Andrew D. Bernstein. "Having witnessed first-hand the evolution of Magic and Larry's relationship, I think this play will bring to light details of one of the NBA's greatest stories of friendship."

Bernstein, who has over 30 years of sports photography experience, documented the Hall of Famers throughout their rise to NBA superstardom, as opponents, and as they ultimately became friends.

Bernstein is available to discuss his experiences in photographing the world's most celebrated athletes, the back-story from behind the lens, and how he captured the rivalry turned friendship. Bernstein is available for commentary, and will be in New York City April 9 - 11, 2012 for in-person interviews.
