Gwyneth Paltrow Ski trial is becoming a musical to debut in London
From December 13 to December 23 a musical titled "Gwyneth Goes Skiing" is set to run at London’s Pleasance Theatre.
The musical is a parody based on the real-life legal clash between Gwyneth Paltrow and Terry Sanderson a retired optometrist who claimed Paltrow injured him in a skiing collision in Utah.
Renowned dance and electronic artist Leland has composed the score for this unique production that tackles the dramatic incident between Paltrow and Sanderson.
The musical's description presents a comedic take on the collision stating, "She’s the Goop-founding, Door-Sliding, Shakespeare-In-Loving, consciously-uncoupling Hollywood superstar.
He’s a retired optometrist from Utah. In 2016 they went skiing." It humorously recounts the collision and subsequent legal battle involving skiing mishaps and the courtroom drama.
The description emphasizes that while the musical is inspired by the incident it's not a true retelling.
It promises a blend of love, betrayal, skiing and an unexpected touch of Christmas engaging the audience as the jury.
The lawsuit originates from a skiing accident in 2016 at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah.
Sanderson's lawsuit accused Paltrow of causing severe injuries including a brain injury, broken ribs, and other serious harm, due to the collision on the slopes.
