WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What better way to celebrate the 2018 Winter Olympics than with songs from the rock opera Tonya & Nancy? Based on the Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan Olympic scandal, Elizabeth Searle and Michael Teoli's rock opera has drawn national and international media coverage, playing in Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles as well as enjoying a sold-out run at the New York Musical Festival. Tony Award-nominated Broadway star Lauren Worsham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) headlines as Nancy, alongside Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages) as Tonya. Onstage, Tonya and Nancy's "mom" (embodied by one powerhouse actor) emcees — and occasionally referees — as Tonya, Nancy, and knee-attack conspirator "Gillooly" belt out songs, including Tonya's "Watch Your Back" and Nancy's aria "Why Me?" Let the games begin!
