Diana DeGarmo, Ace Young to Star in Hit Her With the Skates
Christine Rea and Rick Briskin's musical will make its off-Broadway debut this fall.
After a sold-out run at Union County Performing Arts Center's Hamilton Stage in New Jersey last year, Christine Rea and Rick Briskin's new musical Hit Her With the Skates will premiere off-Broadway in the fall. Former American Idol contestants and real-life couple Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young will star in the new production.
The show is described as follows: "It's 1994 and rock star Jacqueline Miller has a lot to celebrate. She's headlining her first national tour and returning for a hometown concert at her beloved Windy City Skates. When complications hit her head on, Jacqueline comes face-to-face with her 12-year-old self and all the things she learned during the golden age of the roller rink in 1977. From the wisdom of the Ouija Board to the power of Smarties candy, Hit Her With the Skates explores the magic and hope of finding your one true love."
Michael Schiralli will direct the production. The dates and venue will be announced at a later time.
