FULL COMPANY ANNOUNCED FOR ARTHUR MILLER’S THE PRICE
(Washington DC) Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater announces full casting for Arthur Miller’s The Price, which has been extended to receive an additional week of performances due to popular demand.
Three-time Emmy Award winner Hal Linden, known for his portrayal of the title character in the hit television series Barney Miller and his Tony Award-winning performance in Broadway’s The Rothschilds, stars as Gregory Solomon under the direction of Deputy Artistic Director Seema Sueko.
A high-stakes drama about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future, The Price is considered one of Miller’s most personal plays. The Price runs October 6-November 12, 2017 in the Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle.
Joining Hal Linden in the four-person cast are D.C.-area actors Maboud Ebrahimzadeh (Folger Theatre’s Timon of Athens) and Rafael Untalan (Theater J’s Yellow Face) as brothers Victor Franz and Walter Franz, respectively, with Pearl Sun (Broadway’s If/Then, Next to Normal national tour) as Victor’s wife, Esther Franz. Ricardo Frederick Evans (Round House’s Two Trains Running) will assume the role of Victor Franz beginning November 7.
“I look forward to experiencing Seema Sueko’s interpretation of this great play by Arthur Miller,” says Molly Smith. “Miller wrote superb plays about American family life. Even though this play was written decades ago, it continues to snap with contemporary relevance. It’s a pleasure to welcome Hal Linden to Arena, and I know this production will light up the Kogod.”
