|Playwright Arthur Miller.|
There is much good effort exhibited in this production. In his director’s notes, director Lucas Adams makes explicit notes on the parallels with the current state of affairs in the U.S. to the Great Depression and stock market crash of 1929 that triggered it. The parallels are less directly made in the artistic choices of costuming the cast in modern dress that only makes allusion to the period, so that when Mr. Caldwell and Mr. Jackson are explaining themselves, the resemblance their sleek look and stylish haircuts give to contemporary financiers is no coincidence. It is a noteworthy attempt to connect the material to the times and lend it some relevance, even if the limitations of Miller’s text hamstring its full effect.
