Among the starry guests at The Crucible's March 7 opening night party were hot new actress Julia Stiles and hot veteran actor Harrison Ford. Both appeared in the Brad Pitt flic, "The Devil's Own."
The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller in reaction to the McCarthy witch hunts of the 1950s and based in part on historical fact, tells of leaders in puritannical Salem overreacting to a rash of phony witchcraft in its young women. Liam Neeson stars as John Proctor with Laura Linney as his cold, but strong wife Elizabeth. The Crucible plays through June 8 at the Virginia Theatre.
