John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub, Jessica Hecht to Lead Arthur Miller's The Price to Broadway
Roundabout Theatre Company will present a new revival of the drama.
Initial casting has been announced for Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway production of Arthur Miller's The Price, directed by Terry Kinney. The production will begin performances at the American Airlines Theatre on February 16, 2017, in advance of a March 16 opening and will run through May 7.
John Turturro (The Night Of) as Victor Franz, Tony Shalhoub (The Band's Visit) as Walter Franz, and Jessica Hecht (Fiddler on the Roof) as Esther Franz will head the company. Additional casting will be announced.
When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents' estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.
The Price first opened on Broadway at the Morosco Theatre on February 7, 1968, where it played until moving to the 46th Street Theatre on November 18, 1968. The production played a total of 429 performances and starred Harold Gary as Gregory Solomon, Pat Hingle as Victor Franz, Kate Reid as Esther Franz, and Arthur Kennedy as Walter Franz. The drama has since received three revival productions, in 1979, 1992, and 1999.
