WGBH'S JARED BOWEN REVIEWS SKELETON CREW

LISTEN ON WGBH

Read the transcript of the interview:

"This is storytelling at its finest with characters so vividly and naturalistically painted they’ll be riding with you for days."

Jared Bowen: Last night Skeleton Crew opened at the Huntington Theatre Company. Really great job... [In Skeleton Crew,] we find ourselves in the breakroom of a Detroit auto plant - four workers all coming together, and they’re facing what looks to be like the imminent closing of the plant but they don’t have any word. So you have characters at all stations of life from somebody who is just trying to fill out her retirement and make it there, to a young pregnant woman getting on her feet, a young guy whose just married with children trying to establish himself, and another young guy trying to establish a business – but they are not in control of their world. This is a piece by Dominique Morisseau. She’s been inspired by August Wilson to create a Detroit Play Cycle. This is storytelling at its finest with characters so vividly and naturalistically painted they’ll be riding with you for days. And that’s passed into the hands of what proves to be a very exceptional acting ensemble.
