Washington City Paper: THE CRUCIBLE

God gets a bad rap in most stagings of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. The characters are either “with the Lord”—and inside the sniveling Rev. Parris’ clapboard meeting house every Sunday—or running around the woods naked “with the devil” and headed for the gallows. There’s no middle ground, and the judges who decide who’s with God and

DC Examiner: THE CRUCIBLE

The devil: Always in the details By: Barbara Mackay Special to The Washington Examiner The first scene of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” gets down to business immediately: The Rev. Samuel Parris (Colin Smith) has seen some girls dancing naked in the moonlight, and now his daughter, Betty, is lying unconscious. Rumors have begun to circulate

WTOP: The Crucible Named “Top Pick”

Arthur Miller’s disturbing classic “The Crucible” is playing at the Keegan Theater in Northwest D.C through Nov. 2. The production just returned from an Irish tour, which featured local actors in several roles. The American production has been hailed as “riveting” and “white-hot.”

The Edge: THE CRUCIBLE

Keegan Theatre is the perfect venue for “The Crucible”, a play in which one man’s infidelity causes a spurned young woman to manipulate the religious fervor of her community for personal gain by accusing residents of the town of witchcraft. As the play progresses, characters charged with consorting with the devil are declared damned for

Washingtonian: THE CRUCIBLE

Arthur Miller’s enduring take on the contagion of hysteria gets a successful staging. Mean girls in the 21st century have a lot to learn from Abigail Williams. As the spiteful ringleader of the snowballing witch hunt at the center of Arthur Miller’s classic parable, The Crucible (now playing at the Keegan Theatre at Church Street),

DC Theatre Scene: THE CRUCIBLE

Director Susan Marie Rhea is quite commendable … she chooses to let the cast do the work and draws the best performance she can. You will find visual and dramatic beauty in this production … Rhea’s placement and the performances of her actors make for visuals that look like they were painted by a 1960’s

Washington Post: THE CRUCIBLE

The Salem witch trials are a strange, shadowy part of our past: Was that really us, burning those accused of invisible crimes, stringing up suspicious women on trees, hanging them from the branches like Christmas ornaments? What’s especially bizarre about “The Crucible,” Arthur Miller’s dramatization of that time and place, is that the power lies

MD Theatre Guide: THE CRUCIBLE

Arthur Miller’s classic retelling of the 17th-Century Salem witch trials comes to life in DC at The Keegan Theater’s spine-tingling production of The Crucible. Every breathtaking moment of this hauntingly unforgettable show forces the viewer to ask themselves several important questions – and form a true opinion of ones own character by the end of the

Metro Weekly: THE CRUCIBLE

WE MAY NOT BE KILLING women accused of witchcraft today, and we may not condemn people for not going to church, or for not professing faith publicly. Thank God. But Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible, focused on the Salem witch trials from over 300 years ago, is still relevant. There are still factions of
