Idina Menzel Stars
Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) heads to LA this year as she stars in the regional premiere of the off-Broadway hit, Skintight! After a critically acclaimed run at New York's Laura Pel's Theater, Skintight heads to the Geffen Playhouse as part of its 2019/2020 season. An examination of society's slavish devotion to youth and beauty, Skintight is centred on three generations of one New York family as they struggle in grasping onto the true nature of love.
Helmed by the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York Skintight is written by Joshua Harmon. 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?

Add Jodi's own 20-year-old son into the mix and you have an intriguing concoction of sexual attraction, superficiality and true love.
