Idina Menzel and the cast of her upcoming play, Skintight, met with the press on Wednesday, May 16. Idina and the cast spoke with BroadwayWorld, TheaterMania and Playbill. Watch each at their respective links. She also spoke with ABC7 about A BroaderWay and AMNewYork about A BroaderWay and her appearance on Undercover Boss, which you can read here.
I’ll keep adding interviews as they pop up, so check back!
Skintight will begin its limited 12-week run at the Laura Pels Theatre on May 31 with an opening night set for June 21. The final show is scheduled for August 26. Get your tickets now!
Idina Menzel guest-starred as a mentor on Sunday’s episode of American Idol! You can watch a behind the scenes clip of Idina meeting the contestants above and the entire episode on ABC.com.
Idina will also appear on Undercover Boss: Celebrity Edition on May 18 at 8 PM on CBS! Idina will try to remain incognito when she’s asked to sing “Let it Go” to a group of children. Also, while undercover as a receptionist who wants to break into the musical theater business, Idina will try to disguise her voice as she sings alongside a wedding singer at a wedding reception, and she might chicken out when suiting up for a singing telegram job.
Skintight, which begins previews on May 31, is described as a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina) 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.
