Tony Award® winner and five-time Emmy Award nominee Phylicia Rashad returns to Broadway in Manhattan Theatre Club’s Broadway premiere of Skeleton Crew, written by Tony Award® nominee Dominique Morisseau and directed by Tony Award® winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
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.”
