VIDEO: Saoirse Ronan Talks THE CRUCIBLE; Competes in 'Catchphrase' on TONIGHT

On last night's TONIGHT SHOW, Jimmy and guest Saoirse Ronan teamed up against Don Cheadle and announcer Steve Higgins for a game of Catchphrase. Later, the Oscar-nominated actress discusses making her Broadway debut in THE CRUCIBLE. "You go up and down with it, it's very different than film," she explains. "With theater, it's sort of like this machine and you're adding cogs and wheels to it every night until it gets to the stage when it can exist on its own." Watch all the clips below!

The Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's The Crucible began previews on March 1, with an opening night set for March 31 at the Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 West 48 Street.

In addition to Saoirse Ronan, the cast of 18, directed by Ivo van Hove, stars Ben Whishaw (as John Proctor), Sophie Okonedo (as Elizabeth Proctor), Ciarán Hinds (as Deputy-Governor Danforth), Bill Camp (as Reverend John Hale),Jim Norton (as Giles Corey), Tavi Gevinson(as Mary Warren), and Jason Butler Harner(as Reverend Samuel Parris), and featuresTina Benko (as Ann Putnam/Sarah Goode),Teagle Bougere (as Judge Hawthorne),Michael Braun (as Ezekiel Cheever), Jenny Jules (as Tituba), Thomas Jay Ryan (asThomas Putnam), Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut (as Susanna Walcott), Elizabeth Teeter (as Betty Parris), Ray Anthony Thomas (as Francis Nurse), Brenda Wehle (as Rebecca Nurse), and Erin Wilhelmi (as Mercy Lewis).

This new production of The Crucible marks the second Arthur Miller work to be directed on Broadway this season by acclaimed Belgian director Ivo van Hove. His critically acclaimed, Olivier Award-winning Young Vic production of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE just ended its run at the Lyceum Theatre.
