StoryIn the 5,000 years they’ve been married, George and Maggie Antrobus have survived wars, plagues, floods, and everything in between. Now they're running low on food – and a massive glacier is headed toward their New Jersey home. An epic, timely comedy about the endurance of human spirit, Thornton Wilder’s THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH follows one “everyfamily” through the great struggles and triumphs of the human experience.

Led by innovative director Lileana Blain-Cruz in a production that speaks directly to our current moment, this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic with additional material by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is a profound reminder that life is always worth living – no matter how difficult things get.

As we celebrate the 125th anniversary of Thornton Wilder's birth, we are thrilled to bring this play to the Beaumont. “The Skin of Our Teeth is a play for RIGHT NOW,” says Blain-Cruz (Pipeline, War, and Marys Seacole) who will make her Broadway debut with this magnificent play. She adds, “It's about a family that encounters the end of the world over and over and over again. To be on the brink of extinction - and not only survive but invent and laugh and LIVE and LEARN - is extraordinary! I find that extraordinariness - the surreal nature of survival - manifested so incredibly in the Black experience, and it is why I’m so thrilled to bring this particular company of actors together for this production, with a cast that embodies the complexity that is America.”

The superb cast of 28 will be led by James Vincent Meredith and Roslyn Ruff as Mr. and Mrs. Antrobus, Paige Gilbert and Julian Robertson as their children, Gabby Beans as Sabina, the family maid, and Priscilla Lopez as the Fortune Teller.
