Bedlam, the imaginative theatre company most recently represented Off-Broadway with Uncle Romeo Vanya Juliet, a mash-up of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, will return to the New York stage this fall with Arthur Miller’s Tony-winning 1953 play The Crucible.
Directed by Artistic Director Eric Tucker, previews will begin November 8 at the Connelly Theater prior to an official opening November 21. The seven-week engagement, which follows a four-week run at Boston's Central Square Theatre, will continue through December 29.
Casting, design team, and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
“I look forward to diving into this play that I’ve admired for years. The Crucible is a great fit for Bedlam because Miller’s writing and the setting for the piece are very sparse which is in keeping with Bedlam’s aesthetic and it is also a great fit for this moment in time,” said Tucker.
The Crucible was most recently revived on Broadway in March 2016 directed by Ivo van Hove.
Bedlam's acclaimed adaptations include Peter Pan, Sense and Sensibility, Saint Joan, and Pygmalion. Visit Bedlam.org for more information.
