Sex, love and healthcare? These three things that we need but don't always necessarily get, are all touched upon in Under My Skin, which will star Tony nominee Kerry Butler and Matt Walton off-Broadway. Written by Robert Sternin and Prudence Fraser and directed by Kirsten Sanderson, the comedy will begin previews April 5. Opening night is set for May 15 at The Little Shubert Theatre.
In Under My Skin, a twist of fate leads to love and laughs when New York’s most eligible bachelor Harrison Baddish (Walton), and a single, working mother Melody Dent (Butler), hilariously experience each other’s lives and see things from a very different perspective.
Butler received a Tony nod for Xanadu. Other Broadway credits include Catch Me If You Can, The Best Man, Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors, Les Miserables, Rock of Ages and Beauty and the Beast. Walton originated the role of Harrison Baddish at The Pasadena Playhouse. Screen credits include Burn After Reading and One Life to Live. Also reprising the role that she originated at The Pasadena Playhouse will be Megan Sikora as Nanette. Her Broadway credits include Gentleman Prefer Blondes, How to Succeed in Business and Promises, Promises. Additional cast members include: Allison Strong (Bye Bye Birdie) as Casey, Kate Loprest (First Date) and Andrew Polk.
Sternin and Fraser are the creative forces behind The Nanny and Who’s The Boss? Under My Skin will have scenic design by Stephen Dobay, costume design by Lara de Bruijn, lighting design by Driscoll Otto and sound design by Janie Bullard.
