Under The Direction of Tony-Winner Garry Hynes, “The Price”
Runs February 11 – March 22

Rehearsals began for the Center Theatre Group / Mark Taper Forum production of “The Price” by Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award and National Medal of Honor-winner Arthur Miller. The penetrating family drama by one of America’s greatest dramatists will open the Mark Taper Forum’s new season February 11 through March 22, 2015, with the opening set for February 21.

Directed by Tony Award-winner (“The Beauty Queen of Leenane”) Garry Hynes, this poignant story about the cost of choices made over a lifetime, features Kate Burton, John Bedford Lloyd, Alan Mandell and Sam Robards.
“The Price” also features set design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting design by James F. Ingalls and sound design by Cricket S. Myers. Casting is by Meg Fister and the production stage manager is David S. Franklin.

Two brothers who haven’t spoken to each other in 16 years come together to settle their late father’s estate. Victor (played by Sam Robards), a police officer of 28 years, his brother, Walter (John Bedford Lloyd), a successful surgeon, and Victor’s wife, Esther (Kate Burton), gather in the attic of the family’s New York brownstone, where they are met by Solomon, a wise and wily antiques dealer (Alan Mandell). It is not only years of accumulation of family belongings that need sorting out, but also the hidden motives that long ago fractured the brothers’ relationship.

An American classic, “The Price” first opened on Broadway in 1968, and Clive Barnes, writing for The New York Times, said the play was “… one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written.”

The plays of Arthur Miller (1915-2005) include “The Man Who Had All the Luck” (1944), “All My Sons” (1947), “Death of a Salesman” (1949), “The Crucible” (1953), “A View From the Bridge” and “A Memory of Two Mondays” (1955), “After the Fall” and “Incident at Vichy” (1964), “The Price” (1968), “The Creation of the World and Other Business” (1972), “The Archbishop’s Ceiling” (1977) and “The American Clock” (1980), among others. He wrote the screenplay for “The Misfits” (1960), and several books including three with his wife, photographer Inge Morath. He received countless awards including the Pulitzer Prize (for “Death of a Salesman”), three Tony Awards as well as a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement, two Emmy Awards, and the John F. Kennedy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Tickets for “The Price” will go on sale December 20 and will be available by calling (213) 628-2772 or visiting online at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org.
