Dominique Morisseau’s Skeleton Crew Is Headed to Broadway

Manhattan Theatre Club has announced today that the Broadway premiere of Skeleton Crew, written by Tony Award-nominee Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations) and directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson (August Wilson’s Jitney) will begin performances in the winter of 2022.

Production dates and casting will be announced at a later date.

Skeleton Crew will join MTC’s previously announced 2021-22 Broadway line-up of Santiago-Hudson’s Lackawanna Blues, set for fall 2021, and Paula Vogel’s How I Learned To Drive starring Mary-Louise Parker and David Morse, set for spring 2022. The Broadway productions will be staged at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

As described by MTC, Skeleton Crew is set in 2008 Detroit, where 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.

MTC also announced today an Off-Broadway production of Prayer For The French Republic, a world premiere by Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) and directed by Tony Award winner David Cromer (The Sound Inside, The Band’s Visit), to be set for winter 2022.
