This tale of two girls going for the gold is a collision of tragedy and comedy. In 1994, skater Nancy Kerrigan was attacked with a 'knee whack' and suspicions focused on fellow Team USA skater, Tonya Harding. Mayhem ensued. An only-in-America tale of triumph, tragedy, scandal and skating.

The Noise

for a previous production "The storyline’s so melodramatic, duplicitous, and droll, it’s downright epic. This story’s got it all: Action, intrigue, ambition, betrayal—it’s practically Shakespeare on ice. With a sick sense of humor to boot. The all-singing all-dancing cast is all-fricking over the place...It’s not only clever in its mimicry of figure skating, it’s un-freekin-forgettable. I’ll never look at rock ‘n’ roll, theater, or figure skating the same way again." Full Review

See it if The names Tonya and Nancy mean something to you.

Don't see it if You aren't familiar with the titular characters - there's not much here to offer besides the musicalization of their story.
