The Atlantic Theater Company's current world premiere production of Skeleton Crew, written by Dominique Morisseau and directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, which began previews on 6 January 2016 at Atlantic Stage 2, officially opened on 19 January and will end its limited run on 14 February 2016, will transfer to Atlantic's larger off-Broadway home for a second engagement.

Skeleton Crew will begin previews at Atlantic's Linda Gross Theater on 13 May 2016, before an official opening on 19 May and a limited run through to 19 June 2016.

The cast of Skeleton Crew includes Jason Dirden (Dez), Wendell B. Franklin (Reggie), Lynda Gravatt (Faye), Nikiya Mathis (Shanita) and Adesola Osakalumi (Choreographer/Performer).

Synopsis: "In this final installment of Dominique Morisseau's Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step?"

The creative team features choreography by Adesola Osakalumi, scenic design by Michael Carnahan, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Rui Rita, original music and sound design by Rob Kaplowitz, and original songs by Jimmy "J. Keys" Keys.
