Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan Play Toe Pick to Run at Dixon Place
Zackary Grady's entirely transcribed play will be performed concurrently with the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Transcribed from actual events surrounding the infamous scandal and featuring over 30 different characters —including Scott Hamilton and Jane Pauley — Toe Pick is described as follows: "In 1994, one whack propelled figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding into a tabloid frenzy that still captivates over twenty years later. Highlighting how the feverish media pitted the two women against each other, Toe Pick tells the story of how truth can get lost when sensationalized headlines take precedence."
Directed by Christopher Murrah and choreographed by Adam Fleming, the cast includes Grady, Cathy Ang, Holly Ann Butler, Kevin Cahoon, Brennan Caldwell, Deidre Goodwin, Jenn Harris, Preston Martin, Isaac Oliver, Arielle Siegel, and Nicole Spiezio. The creative team includes Tyler M. Holland (costume design), Paige Seber (lighting design), and Dan Daly (set design).
