The Crucible, by Arthur Miller
Why Miller and Shakespeare were buddies
Tuesday, March 19, 2002
5.0
This is one of the finest plays I’ve seen at the Tavern, and it’s an excellent showcase for several of the “traditional” players there. Jennifer Akin is stellar as Elizabeth Proctor, and the relationship between her and Hugh Adams (John Proctor) is very convincing. I found myself wincing when they fought as if I were a good friend forced into overhearing an argument I wished I could have been *anywhere* else for. Which – of course – is a great way to set the stage for watching this play.


I also quite enjoyed Christopher Paul and Maurice Ralston as the point and counterpoint puritan reverends trying to find salvation, either spiritual or political. The rest of the actors were incredibly solid as a supporting cast, and I left the show emotionally drained.


Please do yourself a favor, and don’t miss this play.
