The Crucible (starring Richard Armitage) stage review (The Old Vic)

15 July 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A very earthy and spookily atmospheric production suffers from some dated attitudes: not those of the 1690s but the 1950s. I’m “biast” (pro): love Richard Armitage

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

On Saturday night I attended a performance of a new production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible at London’s legendary Old Vic theatre (where Kevin Spacey is currently the artistic director). I’d never seen the play before, nor had I read it — I knew about it only generally, as Miller’s allegorical take on McCarthyism, written during its height, via a semifictionalized account of the Salem witch trials of the late 17th century. Frankly, I was interested mostly because Richard Armitage is starring, and I wanted to see if he is as mesmerizing onstage as he is onscreen. »
