About Toni Stone:

Toni Stone is an encyclopedia of baseball stats. She’s got a great arm. And she doesn’t understand why she can’t play with the boys. April Matthis knocks it out of the park as the first woman to go pro in the Negro Leagues. Featuring a bullpen of players crossing age, race and gender to portray all supporting roles, Toni Stone is a vibrant new play about staying in the game, playing hard, playing smart, and playing your own way.

Our Toni Stone Review

Lydia R. Diamond, author of Stick Fly, has created a mesmerizing narrative overlaid onto the rhythm that is baseball in Toni Stone at the Laura Pels Theatre. The swing, the hit, the run, the tag. Her writing, combined with the supple choreography of Camille A. Brown, the guidance of Pam MacKinnon, and a cast delivered from heaven creates a quiet play that soars like an opera.
