Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater presents Arthur Miller’s The Price, which has been extended to receive an additional week of performances due to popular demand. The Price runs October 6-November 12, 2017 in the Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle. BroadwayWorld has photos from today’s meet & greet below!
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.
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.
Seema Sueko (Director) joined the Arena Stage staff in July 2016 as deputy artistic director and made her Arena Stage directorial debut with Smart People. She previously served as associate artistic director at The Pasadena Playhouse and executive artistic director of Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company. Her directing and acting credits include The Pasadena Playhouse, People’s Light, The Old Globe, San Diego Repertory, Yale Repertory, 5th Avenue Theatre and Native Voices, among others. As a playwright, she received commissions from Mixed Blood Theatre and Center Stage. Her work has been recognized by the California State Assembly, NAACP San Diego, Chicago Jeff Awards, American Theatre Wing and American Theatre magazine. Seema developed the Consensus Organizing for Theater methodology, has done research on the neuroscience of acting and serves on the Diversity Committee of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.
