ICT revives Arthur Miller’s ‘The Price’
At ICT in Long Beach -- Previews, May 8-9, plays May 10th-May 26th, Thursday thru Saturdays at 8 and Sunday matinees at 2
LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 2, 2019) — What price would you pay for respect and love? John Henry Davis directs Arthur Miller’s riveting tour de force, The Price, for International City Theatre, opening May 10 at ICT’s home in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center. “Miller’s masterpiece still resonates, and we felt it was time to revive it in our larger space for a larger audience,” says ICT artistic director caryn desai. “It’s a timeless, universal subject that will always remain relevant: What’s really important in life? We all get to that place when we’re forced to reevaluate feelings we’ve held in since childhood, to reexamine the ways we related to our families when we were younger.”
Miller noted in his auto-biography, Timebends, that we are often “doomed to perpetuate our illusions because truth is too costly to face.”
