In a New York brownstone marked for demolition, two estranged brothers meet to sort through and sell their late fatherís belongings ó a pile of relics and old furniture buried by a lifetime worth of family baggage. The resulting confrontation leads them to examine the events and qualities of their very different lives and the price that each of them had to pay. Tony nominated play The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future.

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...The Price may not be the absolute masterwork that All My Sons and Death Of A Salesman remain to this day, but that doesn't make it any less revelatory of Arthur Miller's trademark play-writing gifts. Even half a century after its Broadway debut, its depiction of the price we pay for the choices we make delivers one powerful punch to the gut."

Showmag - Somewhat Recommended

"...Director John Henry Davis underplays the constant undercurrent of regret to advantage. It is a play that tries to be many things, sometimes overwhelming the characters. Though it is clear from the outset that things are not going to go well, it takes a long time to get there. We learn about Esther's problems, Solomon's health, Victor's deference to his brother and his sense of fairness, and Walter's unraveling life fueled by ambition. That's a big chunk to bite off. Credit goes to the actors who make believable the interference from the old man and the ultimate showdown telegraphed from the start."

Theatre Notes - Highly Recommended

"...The Price, under the sure-handed direction of John Henry Davis, has a cast that plumbs the depths of emotion with world-class assurance, surfing the surging and relaxing waters of passion with skill and confidence. Mr. Nevell gives his character the everyman nobility so characteristic of Miller's writing. As his brother, Mr. Foxworth twists and turns, now belligerent, now wheedling, now reasonable, now apologetic, as he paints the portrait of a self-absorbed character. Ms. Mirto is a buffer between the two. She is strong and in no way self-sacrificing, but rather a woman who pursues her own agenda as she dreams of a future life with her retired husband."
