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

I love Steve Martin so when I saw his name I jumped at the chance to see what this group did with his writing. I was laughing at all the comic line, thinking about all the serious ones and the time flew by. I would recommend this play to everyone.
Quotes & Highlights
“Mercilessly comic … its double entendre wording is just a hoot. This cast … gives the words a salacious boost that keeps the laughs coming and coming. It’s such juicy fun to watch.” —ForAllEvents.com
“Nobody gives smirk like (Steve) Martin, and the company at Custom Made Theatre delivers the laughs. Lots of them…. Sexy fun. There are Jewish jokes. There are German jokes … There are old people jokes, fat people jokes, jokes on the bourgeoisie. There’s some alarming business with a sausage. And, this being Steve Martin, there is even a banjo joke.” —TheatreStorm.com
“If you are looking for an evening of non-intellectual fun laced with inoffensive sexual innuendo, wrapped in physical comedy … go to the compact and attractive Custom Made venue on Gough Street. … AJ Davenport dominates the stage with her entrance and exits conveying her sexual suppression in a series of hot flashes.” —_TheatreWorld _
