"I want the audience to leave their expectations at the door. It won't be the traditional 1692 world of The Crucible." says ACT artistic director John Langs in Seattle's Stranger. "The current political climate is pushing us closer and closer to the neighbor-versus-neighbor mentality that Arthur Miller so brilliantly captured. The pervasive and profound desire to highlight our differences has consequences that are being felt all over this country and throughout the political spectrum... This is the perfect time to revisit this classic about the power of paranoia and fear."
Performances start Friday, October 13, with the official opening October 19. Tickets available here.
