Why See Toni Stone?

PlaysOff Broadway Shows

The Best Baseball Player You've Never Heard Of

LA Drama Critics Circle Award-winning playwright Lydia R. Diamond, two-time Emmy Award winner Uzo Aduba and Tony-winning director Pam McKinnon join forces to bring the extraordinary story of the first woman to play professional baseball in the Negro League during the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement. The brand new work enjoys an Off-Broadway debut at NYC's Laura Pels Theatre as part of the Roundabout Theatre Company's 2018/19 season.

Aduba, perhaps best known for her magnetic turn as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on the Netflix hit Orange Is The New Black, portrays the titular Toni Stone, a tom boy whose gender and race are both at odds with her love of baseball. Fighting her own battle with racial oppression, the talented sportswoman grows up to defy conventions and become a symbol of civil rights when she replaces Henry Aaron when he leaves for the major leagues.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
