Gwyneth Goes Skiing has announced a run at Edinburgh Fringe this August, with Darren Criss and Cat Cohen set to lend their voices.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing, the play-with-music that captured hearts will head to Edinburgh this summer fresh from two sold-out and critically acclaimed runs in London.

Following the success of Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story at last year’s Fringe, Awkward Productions is eager to return with this gloriously silly offering.

Adding to the excitement, Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Broadway star Darren Criss and Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning Cat Cohen will lend their vocal talents to the show, with Criss singing as Terry Sanderson and Cohen voicing Gwyneth Paltrow.

The show also features Trixie Mattel in a special on-screen appearance as Gwyneth Paltrow’s mother, Blythe Danner, alongside the original cast members Linus Karp and Joseph Martin.

The US debut of Darren and Cat’s vocal performances will take place in Park City, Utah, at The Egyptian Theatre, marking the first international transfer for Awkward Productions.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing humorously recounts the 2016 collision between Terry Sanderson and Gwyneth Paltrow on the slopes of Deer Valley, leading to a court case that captivated the world. With its blend of fiction, verbatim court transcripts, and catchy original music by Leland, the show invites the audience to play jury, deciding the fate of its characters.
