When: Nov. 3-5 2016
In 1953, the Rosenbergs were executed and Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was the Hamilton of the year. Everyone wanted to see it. It was, and is, sensationally deep. An allegory for the United States’ paranoia about communists infiltrating the U.S. disguised as just a well-written play about the Salem witch trials, this commentary on the danger that witch hunts pose to freedom sadly remains relevant. The Crucible will make you think. It is a must-see for theater lovers, history lovers, commies, and ‘muricans. The shows start at 7:30 p.m.; 550 Lone Pine Rd., Bloomfield Hills; blogs.cranbrook.edu/theatre; Tickets are $8-$10.
