Idina Menzel has signed on to reprise the role of Jodi in Joshua Harmon’s acclaimed play Skintight as part of the Geffen Playhouse’s 2019-2020 season! The play will run in Los Angeles from September 3 through October 6, 2019. You may recall that she played the role Off-Broadway in NYC this past Summer.
If you need a refresher, Skintight centers on Jodi (Idina), who is hanging on by a thread after her ex-husband gets engaged to a much younger woman. Jodi retreats to her dad’s swanky Manhattan townhouse, but rather than the comforts of home, she instead finds her aging father’s new live-in boyfriend, Trey—who is 20. In his new comedy, Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) brings neurotic family drama to the forefront as father and daughter contend with the age-old questions of how to age gracefully in a world obsessed with youth and where love fits into it all.
