Gwyneth Paltrow may have lost half a day of skiing, but she’s gained a musical based on her recent courtroom adventure.

A London theatre has announced Gwyneth Goes Skiing, a satire musical based on the actress and wellness guru’s 2016 ski slope collision with a retired optometrist and subsequent 2023 courtroom battle, where she successfully defended herself against a lawsuit.

Reads the musical’s official description on the Pleasance Theatre site: “She’s the Goop-founding, Door-Sliding, Shakespeare-In-Loving, consciously-uncoupling Hollywood superstar. He’s a retired Optometrist from Utah. In 2016, they went skiing. On the slopes of Deer Valley, their worlds collided, and so did they – literally. Ouch. Seven years later in 2023, they went to court. Double ouch. This is their story. Kind of. Not really. But also, it’s at Christmas.”

The audience will also get to serve as the jury and help decide Paltrow’s legal fate.

The show is from Awkward Productions, which previously staged Diana: The Untold & Untrue Story. Linus Karp plays Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph Martin plays plaintiff Terry Sanderson, and there’s original music by Leland (RuPaul’s Drag Race). The musical runs from Dec. 13 to 23 with tickets starting at only $19.

Sanderson had accused Paltrow of a hit-and-run crash — slamming into him while skiing on a beginner’s run at Deer Valley Resort, causing ongoing injuries, and then quickly leaving the scene along with her instructor. But the jury found Paltrow to be “100 percent” not at fault in the collision and decided Sanderson was at fault. She was awarded the amount of compensation she was seeking in her countersuit: $1.
