Tonya & Nancy Album to Be Released By Broadway Records
Broadway Records has announced that Tonya & Nancy (Highlights From the Rock Opera) – Live at Feinstein's/54 Below will be released digitally and in stores on September 28. The album is currently available for preorder at www.BroadwayRecords.com.
Based on the Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan Olympic skating scandal, Elizabeth Searle and Michael Teoli's rock opera Tonya & Nancy played at the New York Musical Festival as well as in Boston, Chicago, and LA. Tony-nominated Broadway star Lauren Worsham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) headlines as Nancy, alongside Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages) as Tonya. Tonya's and Nancy's moms are played by Nancy Opel (Urinetown), who plays emcee — and occasionally referee. Tonya, Nancy, and knee-attack conspirator Gillooly, portrayed by Tony LePage (Rock of Ages), belt out songs based on the true story.
The album was recorded live at Feinstein's/54 Below. Produced by Michael J Moritz Jr, Michael Teoli and Brandon Loewit.
