The new comedy Under My Skin — written by Robert Sternin and Prudence Fraser, the creative forces behind "The Nanny" and "Who’s The Boss?" — officially opens May 15 at 8 PM following previews that began April 5 at The Little Shubert Theatre.
The cast includes Tony nominee Kerry Butler as Melody Dent and Matt Walton as Harrison Baddish with Megan Sikora as Nanette, Allison Strong as Casey, Ed Hyland as Poppa Sam, Dierdre Friel as the Angel, Kate Loprest and Andrew Polk. Kirsten Sanderson directs.
In Under My Skin, press notes state, a "twist of fate leads to love and laughs when New York’s most eligible bachelor (Harrison Baddish) and a single, working mother (Melody Dent) hilariously experience each other’s lives and see things from a very different perspective."
The production also has scenic design by Stephen Dobay, costume design by Lara de Bruijn, lighting design by Driscoll Otto and sound design by Janie Bullard.
Producers are Marla McNally Phillips and Marcy Carsey.
The Little Shubert Theatre is located at 422 W. 42nd Street. Tickets are currently available on Telecharge.com or by calling (800) 432-7780. For more information visit UnderMySkinThePlay.com.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
