The Skin of Our Teeth (Broadway, Vivian Beaumont Theater, 2022) | Playbill

The Skin of Our Teeth


In the 5,000 years they’ve been married, George and Maggie Antrobus have survived wars, plagues, floods, and everything in between. Now they're running low on food – and a massive glacier is headed toward their New Jersey home. An epic, timely comedy about the endurance of human spirit, Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth follows one “everyfamily” through the great struggles and triumphs of the human experience. Led by innovative director Lileana Blain-Cruz in a production that speaks directly to our current moment, this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, with additional material by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, is a profound reminder that life is always worth living – no matter how difficult things get.

SYNOPSIS: The modern-looking Antrobus family and their seductive maid, Sabina, survive many ancient disasters, including the Ice Age, Noah's flood, war and famine, always able to start over and begin anew, in Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy.

May 10–May 29: Tuesday @7pm, Wednesday @2pm and 8pm, Thursday @7pm, Friday @8pm, Saturday @2pm and 8pm, Sunday @3pm
