The Crucible

"The freshest, scariest play in town."

"A gripping, emotional revival."

"Searing performances make the hysteria frighteningly real."



Arthur Miller’s The Crucible returned to Broadway in a new production directed by the acclaimed Belgian director Ivo van Hove, which earned four Tony Award® nominations including Best Revival of a Play. Set during the Salem witch trials of the 1690s, The Crucible is a timeless parable of morality, a scorching indictment of intolerance, and a central work in the canon of American drama.

Theatre: The Walter Kerr Theatre
Opening Date: March 31, 2016
