The West Coast premiere of Skintight has completed its search for Idina Menzel’s co-stars.
Menzel, Will Brittain, and Eli Gelb will reprise their roles from the Off-Broadway production as Jodi, Trey, and Benjamin, respectively. They’ll be joined by Tony Award nominee Harry Groener as Elliot, Kimberly Jürgen as Orsolya, and Jeff Skowron as Jeff.
The play, by Joshua Harmon (Significant Other), follows Jodi as she moves into her dad’s Manhattan townhouse after she finds out her ex-husband moved in with a younger woman. There, she meets her father’s boyfriend Trey, a hunky 20-year-old who offers more than just good looks.
Performances begin at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles September 3 with an opening set for September 12. The show is set to conclude its run October 6.
Skintight is directed by Daniel Aukin with scenic design by Lauren Helpern, costume design by China Lee, lighting by Pat Collins, and sound by Vincent Olivieri.
