Atlantic Theater Company is reuniting the casts and directors of two world premieres the Off-Broadway institution mounted in the past decade: Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau and Guards at the Taj by Rajiv Joseph.

The Fall Reunion Reading Series launches with Skeleton Crew, directed by Tony winner and original director Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Seven Guitars). Jason Dirden, Wendell B. Franklin, Nikiya Mathis, and Adesola Osakulumi all return to reprise their roles from the 2016 Off-Broadway production with Caroline Clay joining the cast. The play streams October 22–24 at 7 PM ET, with an additional performance October 24 at 2 PM.

Skeleton Crew features choreography by Adesola Osakulumi, video editing by Jaime Vallés, original music and sound design by Robert Kaplowitz, original songs by Jimmy “J. Keys” Keys, and original video content by Nicholas Hussong. Kat West serves as stage manager.

Tony nominees Omar Metwally (Sixteen Wounded) and Arian Moayed (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) reprise their roles from the 2015 staging of Guards at the Taj, once again directed by Tony nominee Amy Morton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). Performances stream November 5–7 at 7 PM, with an additional performance November 7 at 2 PM. The reading features video editing by Jaime Vallés, and Kat West serves as stage manager.

The Atlantic also presents Live with Atlantic: Remix, a free creative conversation about the artistic process of each play. Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage interviews Morisseau October 25 at 4 PM, while Joseph and Morton interview each other November 8 at 3 PM.

Performances are free to watch, but tickets are required. The streams broadcast on Atlantic Theater Company’s YouTube, with donations encouraged to support the company. Click here for tickets.
