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

This was just average for me. Agree with another reviewer that it was not the actors but the material. It didn't really keep my attention and I did not find it that funny. There were a few funny parts. It seemed like the production people were laughing more than the audience. On a positive note, the actors played multiple characters well. One patron leaving said it did not remind him of Sedaris at all. I am not familiar with Sedaris' material so I cannot make a valid comparison. I have just heard that Sedaris is funny yet this wasn't too funny.
