A voiceover performance by Darren Criss will be featured in Gwyneth Goes Skiiing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August. The hit viral comedy by Linus Karp and Joseph Martin chronicles the skiing collision of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Terry Sanderson, plus the widely-followed court case seven years later. 

Criss will provide the singing voice of Terry Anderson alongside comedian Cat Cohen, providing the singing for Gywneth Paltrow. They will be joined digitally by RuPaul's Drag Race star Trixie Mattel, who will appear in a filmed segment as Gwyneth's mother, Blythe Danner.

The full cast includes Linus Karp as Gywneth Paltrow, Joseph Martin as Terry Sanderson, Leland as Deer of Deer Valley, Sam Carlyle as Voice of Deer Valley and Rabbit, Wez Maddocks as Squirrel, and Dan Hildebrand as Judge.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing features a book, directing, and lyrics by Linus Karp and Joseph Martin, original music and lyrics by Leland, music production by Gabe Lopez, lighting design by James Appleby, sound design by Roly Botha, choreography by Sam Carlyle, associate direction by Lauren Lambert Moore, production management by Dave Burn, assistant stage management by Ciara Pidgeon, sound recording by Wez Maddocks, hair and wig styling by Vodka, graphic design by Alice Gorman, puppet design by Josh Macrow, puppet consulting by Mikey Brett, and marketing by Stuart Hurford and Alison Hall.

Before it heads to the Fringe Festival, the play-with-music will premiere in Park City, Utah, where the infamous crash occurred, playing the Egyptian Theatre May 16-26. 

Gwyneth Goes Skiing is a co-production between Awkward Productions and Pleasance Theatre.
