Tonya & Nancy (Highlights from the Rock Opera): Live at Feinstein's / 54 Below [CD]
Based on the Tonya Harding/ Nancy Kerrigan Olympic skating scandal, Elizabeth Searle’s and Michael Teoli’s rock opera Tonya & Nancy has drawn national and international media coverage, playing in Boston, Chicago and LA as well as enjoying a sold-out run at NYMF. Tony-nominated Broadway star Lauren Worsham (A Genleman’s Guide To Love and Murder) headlines as Nancy, alongside Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages, Grease) as Tonya. Tonya’s and Nancy’s ‘Mom’ embodied by Nancy Opel (Urinetown) plays emcee — and occasionally referee — as Tonya, Nancy and knee-attack conspirator ‘Gillooly,’ portrayed by Tony LePage (Rock of Ages), belt out songs including Tonya’s “Watch Your Back” and Nancy’s aria, “Why Me?” Recorded live at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Tonya & Nancy has been hailed by critics on both coasts as “brilliant.” Let the games begin.
Produced By Michael J Moritz Jr, Michael Teoli and Brandon Loewit
