New in 2019 In the years following WWII, the Keller family confronts a host of family secrets amidst accusations of war crimes and the impending reality that their MIA son will never return, in this revival of Arthur Miller's classic drama.
From the producers: Award-winning actors Annette Bening and Tracy Letts return to Broadway in the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater. In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance and post-war disenchantment across generations.
Author Arthur Miller was a major figure in twentieth-century American theater. Among his most popular plays are "All My Sons," "Death of a Salesman," "The Crucible," and "A View from the Bridge." "All My Sons" opened on Broadway at the Coronet Theatre in New York City in 1947, winning the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and Tony Awards for Best Author and Best Direction of a Play. The drama was last seen on Broadway in 2008 in a revival starring John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest.
The cast features Golden Globe winner and Academy, Tony, and Emmy nominee Annette Bening ("Coastal Disturbances," "American Beauty," "The Kids Are All Right") and Tony winning actor and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tracy Letts ("Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Showtime's "Homeland"). Tony winner Jack O'Brien ("Carousel," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory") 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.
