International News Gwyneth Goes Skiing to Embark on U.K. and Ireland Tour

The dramatized recreation of Paltrow's 2023 skiing trial previously played two sold-out runs in London.

Awkward Productions' musical Gwyneth Goes Skiing is set to embark on a tour of the U.K. and Ireland later this year, kicking off September 9 at Manchester's Hope Mill Theatre.

The musical is a dramatized recreation of the 2023 trial between Paltrow and Sanderson, where the retired optometrist sued the actor for $300,000 for a crash between the two on a ski slope. Paltrow countersued for $1. The Utah court ruled in favor of the actor. Gwyneth Goes Skiing played two sold-out runs in London and another in Park City, Utah, where the real trial took place.

Darren Criss will lend his voice to the role of Terry Sanderson, with comedian Cat Cohen providing the singing voice for Gywneth Paltrow. They will be joined digitally by RuPaul's Drag Race star Trixie Mattel, who will appear in a filmed segment as Gwyneth's mother, Blythe Danner.

The full cast includes Linus Karp as Paltrow, Joseph Martin as Sanderson, Leland as Deer of Deer Valley, Sam Carlyle as Voice of Deer Valley and Mrs. Rabbit, Wez Maddocks as Mr. Squirrel, and Dan Hildebrand as Judge.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing features a book, lyrics, and direction by Karp and Martin, original music and lyrics by Leland, choreography by Sam Carlyle, stage management and lighting design by James Appleby, music production by Gabe Lopez, sound design by Roly Botha, sound recording by Wez Maddocks, graphic design by Alice Gorman, and hair and wig styling by Styled by Vodka. Nic Connaughton is producing.
