Arena Stage: Lydia R. Diamond's Toni Stone
Join Arena Stage on September 26 at 7:30 pm for a FREE live simulcast of Lydia R. Diamond's Toni Stone. Considered a pioneer, Toni Stone is the first woman to play baseball in the Negro Leagues, making her the first woman to play professionally in a men’s league in the 1950s. Against all odds, Stone blazes a path in the male-dominated sports world, shattering expectations and creating her own set of rules. Based on Martha Ackmann’s book Curveball, The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone, the latest work from award-winning playwright Lydia R. Diamond (Smart People, The Bluest Eye) tells the dynamic and uplifting story of Stone’s journey of perseverance and resilience just to do what she loved the most — play baseball. This production is rated PG13. It contains vulgar language that may not be appropriate for younger audiences. Click here for more information:
