Old Globe executive producer Lou Spisto announced casting for the revival of the small-cast drama about estranged brothers going through their dead father's belongings.
Spisto stated, "The Globe had originally cast The Price with two generations of American actors. Celebrated actor Robert Prosky had planned to work alongside his two sons before his untimely death in December. His sons John and Andy have decided to continue with the project and they, and The Globe, are pleased that veteran actor Dominic Chianese is joining this production. Dominic will bring an ideal presence to this wonderful role written by Arthur Miller."
Richard Seer will direct. Performances will play in the Globe's Arena Stage at the San Diego Museum of Art's James S. Copley Auditorium through June 14. Opening is May 14.
"The Price tells the story of two brothers who reunite, after 16 years, to sell off the remains of their family’s possessions," according to the Old Globe. "Along with the old furniture are memories of choices the two brothers made when their father’s fortunes crumbled. One gave up his education and became a policeman to support his ailing father, the other left his family and went on to become a successful doctor. As they try to arrive at a price with an eccentric antiques dealer, they are forced to settle up in more ways than one as each man reexamines his life and uncovers family secrets."
Emmy Award nominee Chianese is widely known for his work as Uncle Junior on the HBO series, "The Sopranos." He'll play Gregory Soloman, Andy Prosky will be Victor Franz, Leisa Mather as Esther Franz and John Prosky as Walter Franz. The Price is presented in The Old Globe's "Classics Up Close" series, on its second-stage. Miller is the Pulitzer Prize-winner known for All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, A View From the Bridge and more.
