‘The Crucible’ at Antaeus Company
Shakespearean in dimension and craft, “The Crucible,” Arthur Miller’s 1953 play about the Salem witch trials, is inarguably a masterwork. More arguably, it’s overproduced. How, then, does a director bring new immediacy to this beloved yet familiar work? Leave it to the creative team at Antaeus. The company’s subtly revisionist production of the play reinvigorates the language and brings a novel dimension to Miller’s well-worn text. Antaeus Company, 5112 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood. Ends July 7. $30-$34. (818) 506-1983. https://www.antaeus.org.
