Overall I thought the performance was mediocre. The antique dealer and the rich brother were the stonger characters. The other two not so great. There was no chemistry between them and there dialouge was very sing-song. Just reading a script....continued

Very good. Good writing of course, with Arthur Miller as playwright. But also, acting was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Quotes & Highlights

" … one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written. It is superbly, even flamboyantly, theatrical, complying with the classic unities of time, place and action, and Miller holds the interest with the skill of a born story-teller."  —_The New York Times _


Director Michael Menendian said, “I have wanted to stage The Price for nearly 20 years. I consider this to be one of his finest plays, dealing with universal issues of family loyalty, sibling rivalry and commitment to a certain code of conduct. I want the audience to question what they would do in the shoes of the characters.”
