Exciting news comes from the Guild Hall of East Hampton. The center for the visual and performing arts announced late last week that Alec Baldwin and Laurie Metcalf will star in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons this June.
Directed by Stephen Hamilton All My Sons at the John Drew Theater, will run Tuesdays through Sundays, June 9 to 28. The play focuses on the aftermath of World War II and two families struggling to come to terms with all they lost and gained.
All My Sons was the first great success of Arthur Miller’s career, opening on Broadway in January 1947 and running for 328 performances. That production starring Ed Begley, Beth Miller, Arthur Kennedy and Karl Malden, directed by Ella Kazan won the Tony Award for Best Authored Play and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. It was also the main reason Arthur Miller appeared before the House Un-American activities Committee during the 1950s for its questioning of the American Dream.
The play previews Tuesday to Friday June 9, 10, 11, 12 at 8pm and opens on Saturday June 13 at 7pm. It runs Tuesdays through Sundays at 8pm, except for a matinee on Sunday June 28th at 3pm. There is no performance on Wednesday, June 17. Tickets start at $40 and are on sale now at GuildHall.org.
