Photo Flash: First Look at Jeff McCarthy, Lizbeth MacKay and More in Barrington Stage's ALL MY SONS
Directed by Julianne Boyd, All My Sons stars Jeff McCarthy (BSC's Sweeney Todd, Follies and Mack & Mabel) as Joe Keller, Lizbeth MacKay (BSC's A View from the Roof) as Kate Keller, Josh Clayton (Chris Keller), Rebecca Brooksher (BSC's Private Lives) as Ann Deever, Andy Nogasky (Frank Lubey), Pilar Witherspoon (Sue Bayliss), Emily Kunkel (Lydia Lubey), Peter Reardon (Dr. Jim Bayliss), Matthew Carlson (George Deever), and Andrew Gillman (Bert).
Set in post-World War II, Arthur Miller's landmark drama examines the relationships between fathers and sons and the price of living the American Dream. An explosive secret threatens to tear the Keller family apart in this powerful play about the conflict between business ethics and taking responsibility for one's actions.
All My Sons opened on Broadway at the Coronet Theatre on January 29, 1947. The cast included Ed Begley as Joe Keller, Arthur Kennedy and subsequently John Forsythe as Chris Keller, and Karl Malden as George Deever. Directed by Elia Kazan, it won the Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award as Best New Play and ran 328 performances. In 1948 a movie version was released with Edward G. Robinson and Burt Lancaster. All My Sons established Miller as an important American playwright and his next three plays - Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, and A View from the Bridge - cemented his position as heir to Eugene O'Neill as one of America's greatest playwrights.
