Set during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and written in direct response to the McCarthy communism trials in the 1950s, Arthur Miller's scathing indictment of extreme theocracy and human paranoia remains a timelessly relevant classic -- a master study on the inherent frailty, delicate beauty and limitless possibility of the human spirit. The Crucible won the Tony Award for Best Play in its Broadway debut and still holds a spot as one of the most popular and exciting American plays today. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Custom Made presents a dynamic new staging of David Henery Hwang’s modern classic.
A French diplomat carried on a twenty-year affair with a Chinese actor and opera singer, not realizing that his partner was a man masquerading as a woman. From these basic facts comes a sensational drama that wonders how such a fantasy can take hold, and what illusions exist between men and women, as well as between East and West.
Interwoven with the Puccini opera, “M. Butterfly” is a timeless, and highly theatrical, story of love and betrayal.
Directed by Stuart Bousel *
