Toni Stone - Cancelled

"For those ticket buyers who will not be able to see a live performance of Gloria or Toni Stone, we are thrilled to share that we are actively engaged in developing an innovative way for our ticket buyers to experience these stellar productions by watching a recording of the performance from the comfort of their own home. Patrons will be provided exclusive access to a recording of the performance through a partner that will also allow them access to their extensive library of productions, ranging from Shakespearean classics to modern musicals and dramas. We are still working on bringing this all together, but ticket holders will receive an email from A.C.T. with directions on how to access the recording sometime next week."

Toni Stone
by Lydia R. Diamond
Directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon
Choreographed by Camille A. Brown
A coproduction with Arena Stage

"I play with 'the big boys.' Only ever did play with boys, even when I was a little girl."--Toni Stone

Toni Stone dreams of nothing but baseball. But to become the first woman to play professionally with men as a member of the Negro League's Indianapolis Clowns, she must confront hostile crowds, ruthless team owners, and players who slide spikes first. As she negotiates life's challenges and opportunities on and off the field, Toni stays true to herself and reaches for who she can be.

In this new play, playwright Lydia R. Diamond (Broadway's Stick Fly and Showtime's The Affair) uncovers the theatrical journey in Martha Ackmann's book, Curveball: The Remarkable True Story of Toni Stone. The culmination of a seven-year collaboration between Diamond and director Pam MacKinnon, Toni Stone is the extraordinary, real-life story of a trail-blazing Bay Area athlete.

Toni Stone runs 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission.
