Starring Idina Menzel
Following the success of Significant Other, which Roundabout debuted Off-Broadway in 2015 before it transferred to the main stem, playwright Joshua Harmon returns to the company with a new work. An examination of society's slavish devotion to youth and beauty, Skintight is centered on three generations of one New York family as they struggle in grasping onto the true nature of love.
The cast is led by Tony winner Idina Menzel (Rent, Wicked), making her return to Off-Broadway for the first time in over a decade. Daniel Aukin, who also directed Harmon's Bad Jews, helms this powerful new play from one of American theatre's most vital new voices.
