This was the play I thought Richard Armitage would be cast in when we first learned that he was following Roundabout Theater and I checked the 2016 schedule. According to Armitage, it is his favorite Arthur Miller play.
Then, it turned out that it was more likely that the RTC play he would appear in was Love, Love, Love.
The cast for the price is near perfect, although the comical/philosophical character of appraiser, Solomon, has not been announced yet. Tony Shaloub and John Turturro have played brothers before in a few episodes of the TV series Monk. Jessica Hecht has made her mark on Broadway, with at least one Tony Nomination for A View From the Bridge ( another Miller play – saw it, also starring Liev Shreiber and Scarlett Johansson).
For those of you who opted for a subscription to RTC in order to see Love, Love, Love – see if your third play can be The Price. Give some thought to what makes this a Richard Armitage favorite, and when it’s over, try to imagine him as Victor Franz. ( With quite a strong NY/Brooklyn accent)
