It's time for another visit with Midday theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins Tom this week with her review of The Skin of Our Teeth, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer-Prize winning play that's getting a lively new production at Baltimore's Everyman Theatre.

First produced on Broadway in 1942 as the world was being engulfed by war, Wilder's innovative play imagines how humanity survives a global apocalypse and emerges stronger on the other side.

The Skin of Our Teeth continues at The Everyman Theatre through January 2. A streaming option will be available later in this run. For ticket information, click here.
