GableStage opens 23rd Season with Arthur Miller’s Classic Drama, The Price
GableStage has announced their first production of its 23rd season, The Price by Arthur Miller. The Price was the final play being directed by legendary artistic director Joseph Adler before his passing.
New Producing Artistic director Bari Newport picks up where Adler left off, using his notes to bring to life his vision of this classic. In dedication to Adler, this special season-opening production of The Price stars GableStage acting company members Patti Gardner, Peter Haig, Michael McKenzie, George Schiavone and Gregg Weiner, and will run from Nov. 12 through Dec. 12, 2021.
The Price was first presented on Broadway at the Morosco Theatre on Feb. 7, 1968, and was nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Play. During that time, Clive Barnes, critic for the New York Times, described it as “one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written. It is superbly, even flamboyantly, theatrical.” Variety Magazine called it "a challenging, gripping, and moving drama." The Price has been revived four times on Broadway.
This character-driven drama is centered on two estranged brothers. One abandoned his dreams to support his father. The other didn’t. Thirty years later, the brothers reunite to sell their late father’s belongings and are forced to examine their decisions – and the price they had to pay. A classic play, The Price takes audiences on a journey through family dynamics, resentment and more.
GableStage was in the midst of preparing this award-winning production when the theatre was forced to shut down due to COVID-19 in 2020. The set has remained on stage for the duration of the closure, using the same cast and same creative team that were engaged before the shutdown.
In order to offer more flexibility this season, GableStage will stream select performances giving ticket holders the option to enjoy the show in person or via stream. Streaming options for The Price will be available starting Nov. 17th.
CAFÉ Q&A WITH BARI 1 hour before each performance
