Jack Wetherall (The Elephant Man, Queer as Folk) has joined the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company’s Skintight, the world-premiere play by Significant Other and Bad Jews playwright Joshua Harmon.
Wetherall replaces John Noble, who departed the production due to scheduling conflicts, according to Roundabout.
Tony Award winner Idina Menzel (Wicked, If/Then) stars in the play about a divorcée with a 20-year-old son, who discovers that her famous father may be in a relationship with a 20-year-old gay adult film actor. Wetherall will play Menzel’s father.
Skintight will officially open June 21 for a run through August 26.
A Roundabout Underground commission, Menzel has been attached to the project since its first reading in 2015.
Performances will begin May 31 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
Daniel Aukin directs a cast that also includes Will Brittain, Stephen Carrasco, Eli Gelb, and Cynthia Mace.
