New in 2017Roundabout Theatre presents a revival of Arthur Miller’s drama that follows the reunion of two estranged brothers who are brought together by their father’s death and the settling of his affairs.
Begins February 16th.
From the producers: When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.
"The Price" originally opened on Broadway at the Morosco Theatre in February 1968 where it played until the production moved to the 46th Street Theatre in November 1968, ultimately running for 429 performances. The production was nominated for two Tony Awards, for Best Play and Best Scenic Design.
The all-star cast includes John Turturro ("Relatively Speaking," "Life (x) 3"), Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub ("Act One," "Golden Boy," TV's "Monk"), Tony nominee Jessica Hecht ("The Assembled Parties," "Fiddler on the Roof") and Oscar and Emmy nominee Danny DeVito ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "The Sunshine Boys," TV's "Taxi"). Steppenwolf co-founder Terry Kinney directs.What's the Roundabout?
One of the great nonprofit dreadnoughts of the New York theater scene, the Roundabout has three Broadway venues and an Off-Broadway stage in midtown. Prominent artists are usually engaged, significant work is usually done, and even at the smallest of the theaters, the work has the uniform quality that one would expect from such a large and prominent shop.
