Dominique Morisseau’s Skeleton Crew postpones Broadway opening night. After previews began on Dec. 27, the show will now open on Jan. 26 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater at the Manhattan Theater Club.

Skeleton Crew postpones opening night

January 12 was the first date for the show’s return. January 19 was the second date. And it will resume on January 11. Skeleton Crew is set in 2008 Detroit. There, a small car factory is on the brink of foreclosure. And a tight-knit working family hangs in the balance. With uncertainty everywhere and blurring the lines between blue-collar and white-collar workers, this working family must take into account their personal loyalty, their survival instincts, and their ultimate hope for humanity.

Cast and creative

Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson directs the new play, which stars Tony winner Phylicia Rashad, Joshua Boone, Chanté Adams, Brandon J. Dirden, and Adesola Osakalumi.

Adesola Osakalumi is the chief choreographer of Skeleton Crew, with set design by Michael Carnahan. The costume design is by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Rui Rita, original music and sound design by Rob Kaplowitz, projection design by Nicholas Hussong, and original music by J. Keys.

Skeleton Crew, the story collection

Skeleton Crew is a collection of short stories by American author Stephen King, published by Putnam in June 1985. Scream/Press published a limited edition of one thousand copies in October 1985, with illustrations by JK Potter. It contains another short story, “The Becca Paulson Revelation”. It originally appeared in Rolling Stone magazine ( July 19-August 2, 1984), which was later incorporated into Kim’s 1987 novel “Tominok”. The original title of the book was “Night Walk”.

Not the first reschedule

Due to the company’s Covid-19 case, Skeleton Crew’s performances on Broadway were canceled from January 1 to 9. And the performance will resume on January 11. The show also postponed the opening night to January 19th.
