Gwyneth Paltrow ski crash trial will become a musical
The intrigue: The celebrity trial spurred social media fodder about class and privilege and drew comparisons to the HBO hit show "The White Lotus."
Catch up quick: The trial, which unfolded in Park City in March, centered around a 2016 ski collision involving the Goop founder and retired optometrist Terry Sanderson at Deer Valley Resort in Park City.
- Sanderson sued Paltrow in 2019, alleging she "skied out of control" on a slope and knocked him over, leaving him with brain damage and other injuries, according to the lawsuit.
- He originally sought $3.1 million in damages, but it was later reduced to $300,000.
- Paltrow countersued in response for a symbolic $1 and attorney fees, asserting he was the one who barreled into her.
- An eight-person jury sided with Paltrow.
Details: "Gwyneth Goes Skiing" was created by Awkward Productions and will feature original music by "RuPaul's Drag Race" singer and songwriter Leland.
- Audience members will take part as the jury.
- The musical premieres Dec. 13 for a 10-day run.
