Arthur Miller's THE PRICE Enters Final Weeks on Broadway

Roundabout Theatre Company will conclude its new Broadway production of Arthur Miller's The Price, directed by Steppenwolf Theatre Company co-founder, Terry Kinney, on Sunday, May 14.

The cast includes Mark Ruffalo as "Walter Franz," Tony Shalhoub as "Walter Franz," Jessica Hecht as "Esther Franz" andDanny DeVito as "Gregory Solomon."

At the time of closing, The Price will have played 31 preview performances and 69 regular performances. Previews began on Thursday, February 16, 2017 and opened officially on Thursday, March 16, 2017 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street).

When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz (Ruffalo) 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. One of the most personal plays by the consummate voice of the American everyman, Arthur Miller's The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future.

Other productions include a Tony nominated production of The Price in 1992 and All My Sons (1974 & 1997), The Crucible (1989), and the Tony winning revival of A View from the Bridge (1997).
