The Crucible | Raleigh Little Theatre | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: April 13-29 2012
Price: $12-20

Following the success of Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller's The Crucible was met with lukewarm reviews after its opening at the Martin Beck Theater in January 1953. Yet it won a Tony Award for best play and it continues to be revived, including recently on Broadway with Laura Linney and Liam Neeson. Set during the Salem witch trials of the late 1600s, it's an allegory for McCarthyism and the witch hunts to which Miller himself was subjected during the 1950s. The day our world is rid of intolerance, suspicion and mass hysteria is the day The Crucible may retire from the canon of great American dramas. Opening-weekend shows are Friday and Saturday 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.; performances continue Thursdays–Sundays through April 29. —Christina Cass
