Why See Skintight?

PlaysStars on StageSocial CommentaryDrama

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?

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 an intriguing concoction of sexual attraction, superficiality and true love.

What we thought

Mesmerizing HILARIOUS goregous

Idina Menzel fans will relish in her performance.

Playwright Joshua Harmon, who is a born and bred New Yorker, has clearly witnessed the mania around beauty and how we have tried to convince ourselves that beauty lies within. There's a keyword in that sentence, lies.

Happy Days

Dianne Wiest is wonderful... moments of bitter self-awareness pass like clouds over Winnie's determined sunniness, enriching the play's absurdism with plangent notes of deep feeling
