Watch interviews with Tony Award winners: show creator and songwriter Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin and more!) and songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton and In the Heights).

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that's simply impossible to forget.

The Crucible

Crucible Image 0427

A Play by
Arthur Miller

Directed by Christopher Ross

Performances November 3-5, at the Town Hall Theater, Middlebury

 

Arthur Miller’s exciting drama about the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable. Adapted for a contemporary setting, this production of The Crucible attempts to wrestle with, among other things, the notion that “it can’t happen here.”

Producer: Kristen Ginsburg

Stage Manager: Kate Tilton

Choreography: Kendra Gratton

Soundscapes: Derick Rhodes

The Crucible is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
