Arthur Miller

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★☆☆☆ Half-baked:

Leitheatre has made a bold and audacious stroke in its production of The Crucible, using a contemporary setting for Arthur Miller’s great allegory for the anti-communist hysteria in 1950s America.

A View From The Bridge

★★★☆☆ Well told:

A View from the Bridge, Arthur Miller’s great tragedy of loyalty and miss-placed love in the tenements of the waterfront slums of 1950s New York is given a solid production from the EUTC at Bedlam this week.

Death of a Salesman

Death of a Salesman

★★★★☆    Haunting
A quiet profundity burns at the heart of the Royal and Derngate, Northampton’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman at the King’s. Largely eschewing the showy and portentous, it is anchored by a couple of outstanding performances.

The Crucible

★★★☆☆ Clear focus:
Exceptional clarity characterises the Lyceum’s production of The Crucible, whose focus on small details reaps rewards but does so at the expense of dramatic impact.

The Crucible

★★★☆☆ Intimate:
The passion and brutality at the heart of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible are brought out in an intense production at the Bedlam which strives just a bit too hard for authenticity.

The Last Yankee

The Last Yankee

★★★☆☆ Simmering emotion
Rapture Theatre’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s The Last Yankee has an emotional depth and psychological realism that help the production to overcome occasional false steps.

A View From The Bridge

★★★☆☆ Honourable:
A strange and mysterious 1950s New York is explored in the Touring Consortium Theatre Company’s take on Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge, but the production fails to completely convince.
