Richard Dreyfuss and Stacy Keach star in this full-cast performance of Arthur Miller’s classic The Crucible, a central work in the canon of American drama. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In a searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic—with ruthless prosecutors, and neighbors eager to testify against neighbor—The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950s. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play.

This is an LA Theatre Works full cast performance starring Richard Dreyfuss as Reverend John Hale, Stacy Keach as John Proctor, Ed Begley Jr. as Thomas Putnam, Michael York as Reverend Parris, Hector Elizondo as Giles Corey, Irene Aranga as Mercy Lewis, René Auberjonois as Deputy Governor Danforth, Georgia Brown as Rebecca Nurse, Jack Coleman as Marshal Herrick, Bud Cort as Ezekiel Cheever, Judyann Elder as Tituba, Fionnula Flanagan as Reverend John Hale, Ann Hearne as Susanna Walcott, Carol Kane as Mary Warren, Anna Sophie Loewenberg as Betty Parris, Marian Mercer as Mrs. Ann Putnam, Franklyn Seales as Judge Hathorne, Madolyn Smith as Abigail Williams, and Joe Spano as Francis Nurse.

Stacy Keach is perhaps best known for his portrayal of hard-boiled detective Mike Hammer. He played Ken Titus on the sitcom Titus, Warden Henry Pope in the hit series Prison Break, and has been seen in numerous film and stage productions. He won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Ernest Hemingway and starred as Richard Nixon in the US National Tour of Frost/Nixon. His performance in the title role of King Lear has received international acclaim.

After graduating from Carnegie-Mellon University, he acted with various theater companies, including San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater and Los Angeles’ Mark Taper Forum. In 1969, he earned a Tony Award for his performance as Sebastian Baye alongside Katharine Hepburn in Coco. Since then, he has acted in a variety of theater productions, films, and television series, in addition to being active in radio drama.

Richard Dreyfuss is an Academy Award–winning actor who has appeared in such blockbuster films as Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jaws. In 1977 he became the youngest man to win the Oscar for Best Actor, which he won for his performance in The Goodbye Girl. He also appeared in Stand by Me, What about Bob?, The American President, and Mr. Holland’s Opus, among many other films.

His many film credits include Pretty Woman and Runaway Bride, both alongside Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, as well as The Princess Diaries and Valentine’s Day.

The son of Academy Award–winning actor Ed Begley, Sr., he has starred in numerous films, including Woody Allen’s Whatever Works, Batman Forever, The Accidental Tourist, and The In-Laws. As a director, he has worked on the television show NYPD Blue and the award-winning play Cesar and Ruben.

Fionnula Flanagan was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. From an early age she grew up speaking both English and Irish on a daily basis. Her parents weren’t native Irish speakers but wanted Fionnula and her four siblings to learn the language. Her mother used to say, “A nation without a language is a nation without a soul”. Fionnula has said she will be forever grateful to them for that. She was educated at the Abbey Theatre School in Dublin and in Switzerland. She moved to Los Angeles in 1968 and lives with her husband, psychiatrist Dr. Garrett O’Connor, in Beverly Hills. Of her enormous body of work, including stage, television and film, she might be most well-known for James Joyce’s Women, in which she plays six different women who had a profound influence on James Joyce‘s life. Besides giving an award-winning performance, she also wrote, adapted and produced the piece for the stage, and subsequently as a feature film. She believes Joyce is the most important writer in the English language, most notably for Ulysses, Finnegan’s Wake and The Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man.

Carol Kane is an Emmy-winning American stage, screen, and television actress. She is known for her role on the television show Taxi and as Madame Morrible in the musical Wicked.
