David Richenthal, the producer who brought Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman and The Price to Broadway in the past two years, has the hope of reviving Miller's 1953 parable, The Crucible, for Broadway, according to The New York Post.

The paper reported Oct. 13 that Richenthal said the revival — about the 1692 Salem witch hunts, a metaphor for the McCarthy communist hunt at the time it was first presented — is dependent on a star name to play John Proctor, the New Englander who attempts to protect his wife from accusations she is a witch.

No director has been named and no timetable offered, although the paper reported Liam Neeson was offered the lead, but had another project.
