ABOUT

Lorraine Stubenski was the favorite to lead the U.S. gymnastics team in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, but something went terribly wrong.   20 years later, in a society of budding conference call technology, changing roles in the home, and a new sport fist-pumping its way across the nation, Lorraine must face her inner demons, as well as a pyschotic fitness king, in the only place they may be vulnerable: the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobics Championship, hosted by Alan Thicke.

Born when Annie Grunow approached Daniel Levin with-the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobics Championship hosted by Alan Thicke, and asked "How is this not already a musical?" the show was first produced Off-Broadway in 2013 in a partnership with Crunch Fitness.  In 2017 it bounced to Minneapolis, and now is being recorded as an audio musical, hitting your ears in the Spring of 2021.  Get stretchy!
