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

Featured review from Joe R.Red Velvet

The cast writing quotes on the stage floor and visiting with the audience for nearly 30 minutes for a late curtain was distracting and, after a few minutes, it became boring.
While the pace/direction of the performance was clever use of the limited stage, the 'bedroom' was not effective. Some of the cast members were quite good, but most demonstrated ametuer experience and were weak in character development. A show I cannot recommend.
Quotes & Highlights
“It is always a special treat … when Peter Pan is presented in a version for adults, as it is in Jeremy Bloom‘s marvelously subtle adaptation. On leaving the theatre, one is astounded by a satisfied mixture of feelings which include both happy thoughts and the deepest of sorrows… like a faerie who is nothing more than a single darting point of light in the darkness.” —theatrestorm.com
“It’s done in a simple, heartfelt manner that … engagingly explores the questions of innocence, friendship, family and loss that have made the story a classic for more than a century.” —SF Examiner
_Peter/Wendy _is intended for adults of all ages, and children above the age of 12.
