Actor’s Express opens its 32nd season with Skintight, bringing a “blistering new comedy” to Atlanta audiences.
Playwright Joshua Harmon’s latest Roundabout Theatre Company-commissioned piece, Skintight, will make its debut at Actor’s Express under the direction of Freddie Ashley, September 18-October 5.
Bonus tidbits for theatre nerds
Written under special commission from Roundabout Theatre Company, Skintight made its Off-Broadway premiere just last year starring Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel. Actor’s Express has not only produced two of Harmon’s works in the past (Significant Other and Bad Jews), but they hosted him as their 2010–2011 National New Play Network Playwright-in-Residence. During that time, he was writing Bad Jews.

When Jodi Isaac flies across the country to visit her famous fashion mogul father for his 70th birthday, she finds that his posh downtown New York townhouse has a new resident: dad’s new boyfriend. Who is 20. And a porn star. This blistering new comedy by Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) hilariously excoriates America’s obsession with youth, sex and physical beauty.
