L.A. Theatre Works
This weekend, beginning May 30, L.A. Theatre Works will air its production of The Crucible by Arthur Miller, starring Richard Dreyfuss and Stacy Keach. The broadcast can be heard locally in Southern California on Saturday from 10pm to midnight on KPCC 89.3 FM, and can also be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
Arthur Miller’s classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. Written in 1952, The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip.
