We were thrilled to play to big and enthusiastic crowds at the ART”s Oberon Theater this week, with dynamic direction by Janet Roston, fabulous music by Michael Teoli and a truly awesome cast, headed by Kristen Lee Sergeant & Darcie Champagne, rocking the lead roles.

We were happy to receive coverage from The Boston Herald, The Boston Phoenix, FOX25 TV and more– plus wonderful words of praise from cool author Steve Almond on WGBH Boston, the Emily Rooney Show.  Thanks to Steve!

I am proud to have written the libretto for the rock opera and to have come up with the concept of doing Tonya & Nancy as ‘opera’.  This new show is based on a one-act chamber piece, Tonya & Nancy: the Opera, with libretto by me and music by super-talented Abigail Al-Doory Cross.  Photos and updates from the Rock Opera will follow but for now, enjoy this YouTube teaser created by my gifted videographer brother Bill Searle of Cholla Productions.  Watch our Facebook Events page for updates.

Cheers to all involved and skate happy!
