Renowned director Sir Richard Eyre will speak at Minneapolis' Guthrie Theater on Thursday, July 11.
Eyre, who directed this season's acclaimed, Tony-nominated revival of Arthur Miller's The Crucible, will be part of the Guthrie's "Celebrating Arthur Miller" series, which includes back-to-back Guthrie productions of Miller's All My Sons and Resurrection Blues. [All My Sons is a revival of Miller's 1947 play, while Resurrection Blues is the world premiere of his newest work.] Eyre will discuss the playwright's life and works in an evening entitled "An Englishman Explores the Work of Arthur Miller," which begins at 8 PM and concludes with questions from the audience.
Sir Richard Eyre served as Artistic Director of London's Royal National Theatre from 1988 through 1997. His productions there included King Lear, Richard III, Carousel, Sweeney Todd and the first part of Tony Kushner's Angels in America. He is the recipient of Olivier, Tony and Peabody awards, and his Broadway credits boast The Crucible, Skylight and Amy's View.
