An Important Programming Update / COVID-19 Update – May 1, 2020

At American Stage, we recognize that we must continue to be patient. It is not yet time for us to reopen our doors. As much as we miss you, we know that we must continue to wait before we come back together. The health and well-being of all demand that we remain cautious and deliberate. So, for now, we will continue to postpone our programming at least through the end of June.

Eventually, our doors will reopen. When they do, things will look a little different. As we plan for social distancing within the theatre, we will take every precaution to help us all feel safe and comfortable experiencing our live performances together once again.

    Tampa Bay Premiere
    January 22 – February 23, 2020

    It’s 2008, and one of the last auto plants in Detroit is on shakey ground. The remaining factory workers are living paycheck-to-paycheck and now each of the workers must navigate the possibility of foreclosure. As power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred.  With moments of heartbreak and humor, SKELETON CREW is a beautiful homage to the American blue collar worker.

    “CRITICS’ PICK! A deeply moral and deeply American play, with a loving compassion for those trapped in a system that makes sins, spiritual or societal, and self-betrayal almost inevitable.” – The New York Times
