'Skintight,' nimbly directed by Daniel Aukin is... a bracingly cynical well-made play.

Why See Skintight?

PlaysOff Broadway ShowsStars on Stage

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.

What is Skintight About?

Shocked at the news that her ex-husband has married a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac seeks the support of her fashion designer father, but instead finds him embroiled in his own trist with 20 year old porn star Trey. Add Jodi's own 20 year old son into the mix and you have intriguing concoction of sexual attraction, superficiality and true love.

What we thought

Mesmerizing hilarious GOREGOUS

Idina Menzel fans will relish in her performance...her performance as Jodi is mesmerizing

When you live in big city like New York one doesn't have to look far to see a giant billboard of a model adorned with the latest garb, and you are likely to pass over a hundred subway commercials showing you an overload of products and services

The real spinning carousel in this production is love. That, for better and worse, is what makes nature churn - and the world go round - in this show's blissful, anguished universe.
