Skeleton Crew - 2022 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

A timely and gripping Broadway premiere from Tony Award® nominee Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud, Pipeline). In 2008 Detroit, a small automotive factory is on the brink of foreclosure, and a tight knit family of workers hangs in the balance. With uncertainty everywhere, the line between blue collar and white collar becomes blurred, and this working family must reckon with their personal loyalties, their instincts for survival and their ultimate hopes for humanity. The New York Times gives this astonishing work a Critic’s Pick and cheers, “A very fine new play… warm-blooded, astute, deeply moral and deeply American.” And The Amsterdam News hails it as “a prime example of how theatre imitates life… intense, touching and funny.” Directing is MTC’s Tony-winning Artistic Advisor Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues, August Wilson’s Jitney).

Featured Reviews For Skeleton Crew


‘Skeleton Crew’ Review: Phylicia Rashad, Chanté Adams Shine in Vibrant, Profoundly Layered Play - Variety
The playwright Dominique Morisseau knows what she is doing. That's clear not only because she says it so convincingly in her Playbill note for Manhattan Theatre Club's production of "Skeleton Crew," but because she writes this moving drama with pristine delicacy and develops its characters with rigorous detail and tact. Under the masterful direction of Ruben Santiago-Hudson, "Skeleton Crew" presents a vibrant cast, poetic dialogue and profoundly layered storytelling that move the audience to audibly engage.

Skeleton Crew on Broadway Review - New York Theater
The script, full of dialogue that is both streetwise and lyrical, is unchanged from the original Off-Broadway production six years ago. The play still unfolds as an increasingly revealing portrait of four decent if flawed people depicted with humor and affection. The director, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, who also helmed the original, has gotten largely effective performances out of a new ensemble cast
