REVIEW: Village Voice – Joys Great and Small: A Spectacular ‘Skin of Our Teeth’
The Village Voice reviews Theatre for a New Audience’s production of The Skin of Our Teeth.
From The Village Voice review of Theatre for a New Audience’s production of The Skin of Our Teeth:
Thornton Wilder wrote The Skin of Our Teeth in 1942, when the world was a living hell and no one knew whether it would survive. Well, welcome to 2017. Our living hell is a more comfortably cushioned one, but this time around the worry over its survival stings more harshly, since the lunatic sits in the White House instead of the Reichskanzlei. Wilder, suddenly, has become a prophet again, searching for values that make humanity worth saving, in a world constantly on the verge of being destroyed either by pitiless nature or by human rage, selfishness, and folly.
