The Crucible
Atkinson’s review sums up — “After the experience of ‘Death of a Salesman’ we probably expect Mr. Miller to write a masterpiece every time. ‘The Crucible’ is not of that stature and it lacks that universality. On a lower level of dramatic history with considerable pertinence for today, it is a powerful play and a genuine contribution to the season.”
