Two champions at the peak of their prowess, competing at the highest level of human achievement, more in common with the titans of myth than with the us miserable hoi polloi—man, this shit’s already thematic as Hell and we haven’t even gotten to the part with the porn ‘staches and the folding batons. Relive all the magic, incredulity and dissapointment (“Tonya Tapper?” Not as dirty as it sounds) of the shockingly cutthroat world of early-nineties championship figure-skating with the Tonya and Nancy rock opera (as in Harding and Kerrigan, for our slower/younger readers) opening over at OBERON.
