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.

New York has a brand-new heroine—and a big new hit. Lydia Diamond’s new play—the New York Times Critic’s Pick—knocks it out of the park with an intensely theatrical glimpse into the world of the first woman to go pro in baseball’s Negro Leagues. Obie Award winner April Matthis leads the cast of this funny and fascinating story of race, gender, ambition…and an unremembered superstar you’ll never forget.

Toni Stone is based on the book Curveball, The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone by Martha Ackmann.

Produced in association with Samantha Barrie.
