Nancy Opel and Tony LePage have joined the cast of the previously announced February 13 concert presentation of Tonya & Nancy: The Rock Opera at Feinstein’s/54 Below.

Based on the skating rivalry between Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan that turned violent in 1994, the musical has book and lyrics by Elizabeth Searle and music by Michael Teoli.

Opel (Urinetown, Memphis) will take on the dual roles of Harding and Kerrigan’s mothers, while LePage will play Harding’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly—a role he created in the musical’s NYMF premiere.

The cast for the 9:30 PM concert will also include Heidi Friese (Matilda) as Oksana Baiul, the skater who nabbed the 1994 Gold from Tonya and Nancy. Also featured are Tatiana Lofton, Ryan Mac, and Jason Pintar, who variously play reporters, skaters, and knee-attackers.
