Thornton Wilder's 1942 Pulitzer Prize winning play, The Skin of Our Teeth returns to Broadway in a new production directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz!

Thornton Wilder's 1942 Pulitzer Prize winning play follows the Antrobus family as they confront the challenges of nothing less than the apocalypse, dinosaurs, war, a woolly mammoth, the Ice Age and raising two kids in suburban Excelsior, New Jersey. It is mayhem, sometimes absurd and funny and sometimes deeply moving, but it is always real.

Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, the cast of 28 features Gabby Beans, Paige Gilbert, Priscilla Lopez, James Vincent Meredith, Julian Robertson and Roslyn Ruff.
