Idina Menzel Is Returning to New York Stage in 'Skintight'!

Idina Menzel is coming back to New York City in the upcoming off-Broadway show Skintight.

The 45-year-old Tony Award winning star will play the role of Jodi Isaac in the world premiere of the play, beginning May 31, 2018 with an official opening June 21, 2018.

Here’s a synopsis: Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. 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.

The show will be performed at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
