ARTICULATE THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS
THORNTON WILDER’S THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH
CONTACT: Sergei Burbank | ATCcompTix@gmail.com | 917.921.6760
Articulate Theatre Company kicks off its 2015 season with its presentation of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning play The Skin of Our Teeth at TADA! Theatre, 15 West 28th St. The limited engagement runs from March 5 to March 22:
General performances: Thurs to Sun at 7p
Afternoon matinees: March 15 and March 22 at 2pm
Special evening performance: Wed, March 18th
The production is an Equity-approved showcase. Tickets are $18-23, and available online at www.articulatetheatre.com, or can be purchased at the door. Running time is three hours, including intermission. For press/media tickets and interviews, please contact ATCcompTix@gmail.com or 917.921.6760.
For the first time in 17 years, The Skin of Our Teeth comes back to a New York City stage.
Why? Because of the incredible topicality of the play’s theme: our survival against impending disasters of natural and man-made origin: climate change, political corruption, war - as frightening now as they were in 1942. Refreshingly, Wilder (and Articulate Theatre) believe in humankind’s resilience -- we will survive!
A LITTLE MORE INFO:
The Skin of Our Teeth takes place in an Absurdist playground where the audience can never feel sure of its footing. Artistic Director Cat Parker says, “Wilder was ahead of his time in many ways. Using 'meta' theatre long before it was en vogue, Wilder makes his characters break the fourth wall periodically to remind the audience that this is our world he is talking about, even if we are watching woolly mammoths, biblical floods, and a cast that can’t decide if they’re on stage or in therapy.”
