ALL MY SONS ANNOUNCES RECOUPMENT ON BROADWAY

“ALL MY SONS” ANNOUNCES RECOUPMENT

HIT ARTHUR MILLER PLAY
STARRING JOHN LITHGOW, DIANNE WIEST,

PATRICK WILSON AND KATIE HOLMES
ENDS LIMITED ENGAGEMENT ON JANUARY 11 2009

Producers of ALL MY SONS announced today that the new production of the Arthur Miller play has recouped it $3.25 million capitalization.  This marks the highest capitalization of a commercial play ever to be recouped.

 

The hit production starring John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Patrick Wilson and Katie Holmes, and directed by Simon McBurney, began previews on September 18 and opened on October 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, 236 West 45 Street.  The limited engagement ends as scheduled on January 11 2009.  This production of ALL MY SONS marks the first posthumous Broadway staging of an Arthur Miller play.
 
The production set a record for the weekly gross of a play ($739,653) at the Schoenfeld Theatre, which also marks a record for all Broadway plays this season.  

The cast of ALL MY SONS also features Becky Ann Baker, Christian Camargo, Jordan Gelber, Danielle Ferland, Damian Young, and Michael D’Addario.

Critics raved about the production: The New York Times said, “John Lithgow and Patrick Wilson are electric.” Variety called it “a commanding illustration of the power of theatre,” and the London Guardian called it “A play for Obama’s America.” The New Yorker said, “It’s a stretch to imagine anyone doing a better job than Simon McBurney does here.”  The New York Post called it “a powerfully acted revival with a starry cast.” Newsday said “John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest are shattering.”  The Associated Press said, “Katie Holmes has a striking presence.” 

  
Arthur Miller’s first successful play, ALL MY SONS won the Tony Award for the author in 1947 and ran for 328 performances on Broadway.  Miller took his inspiration from a true story about a successful business man who knowingly sold the government defective airplane parts during World War II with tragic consequences.  The truth comes out and his life unravels when his son prepares to marry his business partner’s daughter.

Design for ALL MY SONS was done by Tom Pye (sets and costumes); Paul Anderson (lights); Christopher Shutt  and Carolyn Downing (sound); Finn Ross for Mesmer (projections) and Paul Huntley (wigs and hair).

 

ALL MY SONS is produced by Eric Falkenstein, Ostar Productions, Barabara H. Freitag, Stephanie P. McClelland, Scott Delman, Roy Furman, Ruth Hendel, in association with Hal Luftig, Jane Bergère, and Jamie deRoy.

 

ALL MY SONS plays Tue at 7, Wed-Sat at 8, Wed and Sat at 2, Sun at 3.  Tickets for evening performances and Saturday and Sunday matinee performances are $66.50 and $116.50.  Tickets for Wednesday matinee performances are $61.50 and $111.50.  All prices include a $1.50 facility fee.

“ALL MY SONS” IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

 

JOHN LITHGOW AND PATRICK WILSON FEATURED

 

 

ALL MY SONS stars John Lithgow and Patrick Wilson were interviewed by Patricia Cohen in today’s New York Times:

“The last time that John Lithgow and Patrick Wilson participated in the kind of theater exercises that they did to prepare for the current Broadway revival of “All My Sons” was in drama school.

Simon McBurney, the director, ‘had us take turns acting out a ball of cellophane slowly uncrumpling,’ said Mr. Lithgow, who plays Joe Keller, a likable machinery manufacturer. ‘That’s the one we joked that we’d be embarrassed to have reported.’

Mr. Wilson laughed in agreement. (Remember ‘A Chorus Line,’ when a dancer sings about being an ice cream cone in acting class and trying to melt?) Abashed or not, though, both award-winning actors readily admit that Mr. McBurney’s unconventional process worked. The exercises helped build up ‘the trust we have in each other,’ said Mr. Wilson, who plays Joe’s son Chris, the surviving one of two brothers who fought in World War II and who has come home to work with his dad.

ALL MY SONS: A PLAY FOR OBAMA’S AMERICA?

ALL MY SONS: A PLAY FOR OBAMA’S AMERICA?

 

Matt Wolf wrote about ALL MY SONS on his blog in yesterday’s London Guardian newspaper:

“I was greatly moved by Simon McBurney’s current sellout Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s play ALL MY SONS when I caught a recent, pre-election, matinee. But, it wasn’t until I stayed up through the night in London to watch Barack Obama sweep all before him, that I finally grasped in what particular way McBurney’s production delivers. I wonder, is it possible for a theatre production to be politically prescient; to capture the mood of the times without fully realising it?”
