Arthur Miller’s ‘The Price’ opens at Thunder River
February 22, 2018
Carbondale's Thunder River Theatre Co. will open its production of Arthur Miller's "The Price" today.
The play features a cast of four Roaring Fork Valley actors: Bob Moore; Trary Maddalone; Jeff Carlson and Owen O'Farrell.
"The Price" first appeared on Broadway in 1968 and was nominated for two Tony Awards. It has had four revivals there, including a run with Mark Ruffalo and Danny Devito last year. It tells the story of two estranged brothers — one a policeman and the other a doctor — who are reunited to establish a price for their deceased father's belongings with the help of a charming and world-wise Jewish furniture dealer.
"This promises to be an electric night of theatre," Thunder River executive artistic director Corey Simpson said. "Our past couple of productions have challenged our audiences with quirkier, more contemporary work, and 'The Price' takes us back to TRTC's wheelhouse of presenting classics and powerful American dramas."
After today's opening and Champagne reception, the show will run Saturday, March 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 10. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. except matinee performances at 2 p.m. March 4.
Tickets are available at http://www.thunderrivertheatre.com or by phone at 970-963-8200.
