The recent August staging of Arthur Miller's The Price, directed by James Naughton at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, will begin Broadway performances Oct. 29, toward a Nov. 9 opening, at the Royale Theatre, a spokesperson confirmed.

The Williamstown revival of Miller's four-character 1967 drama about brothers reuniting to root through their dead father's belongings played the Main Stage of the Massachusetts fest Aug. 18-29, and caught the eye of producer David Richenthal (whose production of Miller's Death of a Salesman will close at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Nov. 7).

Jeffrey DeMunn, Bob Dishy, Lizbeth Mackay and Harris Yulin are expected to reprise their seasonal roles for Broadway.

Richenthal, who has a smash with Salesman, is lead producer for The Price.

At the theatre festival in Massachusetts, designers for The Price were Michael Brown (set), Laurie Churba (costume), Rui Rita (lighting) and Jerry Yager (sound).  

The previous Broadway revival of The Price was staged by the Roundabout Theatre Company (at the Criterion Center) in 1992-93. Directed by John Tillinger, it starred Hector Elizondo, Eli Wallach, Debra Mooney and Joe Spano. It was nominated for the Best Revival Tony Award.
