If the thought of Thornton Wilder brings to mind endless, saccharine productions of Our Town, check out his, er, wilder side at TFANA this month, where Arin Arbus directs a new production of The Skin of Our Teeth. Weirder and less frequently performed, the 1942 drama is part allegory, part world history, part family farce, following the Antrobus couple (described by Wilder as "the stuff of which heroes are made") and their offspring in a tale, both wacky and serious, that is simultaneously set in prehistoric times and in modern New Jersey. In its darker moments, the play confronts war, economic depression, and family strife — but there are also onstage appearances by a dinosaur and a woolly mammoth. Arbus's production features an original score by the wonderful César Alvarez — creator of the 2015 musical Futurity, among others — and a stellar cast starring Kecia Lewis and David Rasche.
