On Monday, 12/12, we put up our very first very rough draft of The Magnificent Seven at Cloud City, as the culmination of our year with the Playground Playgroup at Fresh Ground Pepper. So excited to work with some of our favorite performers (pictured above, sticking the landing).

Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps, and Kerri Strug made up the first U.S. women’s gymnastics team to win Olympic team gold at the 1996 Atlanta games. The Magnificent Seven imagines their inner lives on the two days of team competition, as they reach for their young dreams and their faces on the Wheaties box, all leading up to a star-making vault heard ’round the world.
