Tony Winner Idina Menzel To Return To The Stage

What a way to start off my Tuesday morning. It was just announced, that Tony winner and recording star Idina Menzel, is headed to the New York stage for the first time since her Tony nominated performance in If/Then. Skintight, the new play by Significant Other playwright Joshua Harmon, will have it's world premier next Spring at the Laura Pels Theatre.

The show, which is to be directed by Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews, Fool For Love), will begin previews on May 31, 2018, with opening night scheduled for June 21. So what exactly is the show about? Well according to a production source,  "Skintight tells the story of Jodi Isaac, a divorcee with a 20-year-old son who discovers her famous father is in a relationship a with Trey, who’s also 20, and possibly gay. And possibly an adult film star.

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. Now I don't know about you, but it is a little hard to picture Idina Menzel with a twenty-year old kid. Then I remembered that she was in her mid-twenties when Rent opened on Broadway. Which by the way was twenty-one years ago. Now I feel old. Tickets for the show are scheduled to go on sale later this year. Stay tuned to this site for future updates. Until next time theatre fans.
