Idina Menzel is heading back to the stage! Idina will appear in “Skintight,” a comic drama by Joshua Harmon (“Bad Jews,” “Significant Other”), as part of a limited Off-Broadway engagement. “Skintight” is described as “a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex.” Idina has been involved with the production since the first reading in January 2015. Here’s a description:
Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. “Skintight” assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what’s on the inside.
“Skintight”, which is a Roundabout Theater production, will begin performances on May 24, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre and open officially on June 21, 2018. The play is scheduled to run through Aug. 26, 2018.
