This new production of the Miller play will mark the second Arthur Miller work to be directed on Broadway this season by acclaimed Belgian director Ivo van Hove, whose Olivier Award-winning Young Vic production of A View from the Bridge opens at the Lyceum Theatre this fall. THE CRUCIBLE will begin performances on Monday evening, February 29 and open on Thursday, April 7, for a 20-week limited engagement through Sunday, July 17, 2016.

Widely considered to be a central work in the canon of American drama, THE CRUCIBLE premiered on Broadway in January 1953, won that year's Tony Award for Best Play, and has subsequently become Arthur Miller's most-produced work.
