Last night in New York City, the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Arthur Miller’s The Price opened on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre. It will run through May 14 (it was scheduled to run through May 7 and was extended).
The Price deals with familial resentment, lies, misunderstandings and the lasting generational repercussions of The Great Depression through Miller’s signature and definitive playwriting.
Terry Kinney directs the four actor cast -- Mark Ruffalo, Tony Shaloub, Danny Davito (making his Broadway debut), and friend of WAMC, Jessica Hecht.
Hecht recently starred on Broadway in the Tony Award® nominated revival of Fiddler on the Roof. She last starred on Broadway in the Tony Award nominated play, The Assembled Parties. She was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in the recent revival of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge opposite Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson. Her other Broadway appearances include the revivals of Harvey opposite Jim Parsons, Brighton Beach Memoirs opposite Laurie Metcalf, Julius Caesar opposite Denzel Washington, After the Fall opposite Peter Krause and Carla Gugino, and her Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning play, The Last Night of Ballyhoo.
This coming summer, Jessica Hecht will perform at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl.
