The New York Times reported Sept. 17 that the summer staging of Arthur Miller's The Price, directed by James Naughton at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, will "open" Nov. 9 at Broadway's Royale Theatre.
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 fest Aug. 18-29. Jeffrey DeMunn, Bob Dishy, Lizbeth Mackay and Harris Yulin are expected to reprise their seasonal roles for New York, according to The Times.
David Richenthal, who had a smash with the current Broadway revival of Miller's Death of a Salesman (slated to close Nov. 7), is lead producer.
At the theatre festival in Massachusetts, designers for The Price were Michael Brown (set), Laurie Churba (costume), Rui Rita (lighting) and Jerry Yager (sound).
A phone call to Richenthal had not been returned at press time. *
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.
