Tony winner Idina Menzel will return to the stage in the world premiere of Skintight, a new play by Significant Other scribe Joshua Harmon. The Roundabout Theatre Company production, directed by Daniel Aukin, will run May 31-August 26, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre.

Menzel stars as Jodi, a woman "reeling from ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman. Jodi 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."

Additional information about the production will be announced in the coming months. Menzel has been involved with the work since its first reading in January 2015.
