Get a first look at Tony winner Phylicia Rashad in the Manhattan Theatre Club production.

Following an initial delay and a COVID-related pause, Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Dominique Morrisseau's Skeleton Crew officially opens January 26. Previews began December 27 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Watch highlights from the production above.

The play, the third in Morisseau's Detroit Cycle, tells the story of a tight-knit family of workers at a small auto factory facing foreclosure. It stars Tony winner Phylicia Rashad (Gem of the Ocean, A Raisin in the Sun), Brandon J. Dirden (Jitney), Chanté Adams in her Broadway debut, Joshua Boone (Network), and dancer-choreographer Adesola Osakalumi (Fela!). Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson directs the work.

The creative team includes set designer Michael Carnahan (Lackawana Blues), costume designer Emilio Sosa (The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess), lighting designer Rui Rita (The Velocity of Autumn), and projection designer Nicholas Hussong (On Your Feet!). Original music and sound design is by Rob Kaplowitz, with original songs by Jimmy ‘J Keys’ Keys, and vocal foley work by Chesney Snow. Casting is by Dave Caparelliotis and Kelly Gillespie, and Kamra A. Jacobs serves as production stage manager.

Morisseau made her Broadway debut in 2019 with her Tony-nominated book for The Temptations bio-musical Ain't Too Proud.
