The Price | [Arthur Miller]

The Price

Arthur Miller's deeply moving drama reunites two long-estranged middle-aged brothers. Nostalgia and recrimination erupt as they sell off an attic of furniture, their last link to a family and a world that no longer exist. This 1968 classic is a wrenching saga of plaintive gestures and missed opportunities. A BBC co-production.

    "Another Great Performance"

    Richard Dryfus Amy Irving and the rest of the cast were outstanding. Arthur Miller knows a thing or two about the Human Character and the dynamics of family life

    "Dreyfus is fantastic"

    Excellent performances and pristine recording. Highly recommend. Minor Miller but in my mind a minor masterpiece about men, pride, aging, money and communication.

    "Great performances, not his best play"

    Perhaps this is a better viewing than listening, but this is not my favourite of Arthur Miller's plays......Although this is about sibling rivalry both past and present, some of the best parts, in my opinion, are the conversations between husband and wife (younger brother Victor and his wife Esther). A life lived for better and worse, moral responsibilities and youthful indulgences, past regrets and future fears. Great ideas and themes to explore, but, overall, the characters seemed a little too flat and poorly fleshed out - seeing the body language might have helped that, where listening leaves us without action and language to support the text.

    "Not terrific, but worth a listen"

    Good performances from all, especially Timonthy West, keep the listener with this rather mediocre Miller play. Not one of LA Theaterworks best efforts, but still quite enjoyable.

    "Great cast and production"

    This a stellar production, great for audio. The performances are top notch all around. If you like Miller, you'll enjoy this tremendously (although it's not one of his best plays.)

    "The Price"

    An outstanding performance of a gripping play. Vivid portrayal of the characters enmeshed in the kind of family drama that is all too common. A master playwright, Miller uncovers emotional causes that fractures families and blights lives - but always with compassion. These threads are shown clearly in this superb LA Theatre production, with the surprise casting of Timothy West in an otherwise all-American cast.
