    Skeleton Crew on Broadway Tickets

    Phylicia Rashad stars in the third play in Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit cycle, exploring the Great Recession’s impact on a group of factory workers. Acclaimed by critics in pre-Broadway seasons, this impassioned and political play transfers to the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

    Morisseau’s Detroit cycle reaches Broadway

    Phylicia Rashad returns to Broadway in Manhattan Theatre Club’s premier of Skeleton Crew at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The third play in Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit trilogy - preceded by Paradise Blue and Detroit '67 - explores the working class families affected by the Great Recession.

    Set in Detroit in 2008, Skeleton Crew opens in the break room of a small automotive factory which is on the verge of foreclosure. As a tight-knit group of employees' jobs hang in the balance, class divides between white and blue collar blur and their loyalties and survival instincts are tested. 

    Written by Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau and directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues), Skeleton Crew premiered at the Atlantic Theatre Company in 2016. 

    Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad stars as union rep Faye, alongside Chanté Adams as Shanita and Brandon J. Dirden as Reggie.

    Both poetic and political, Skeleton Crew tickets offer audiences the chance to experience a sharply observed and impassioned representation of working-class America.
