The upcoming production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible has pushed back its first Broadway preview date so that Saoirse Ronan can attend the Oscars, where she has been nominated for her performance in the film Brooklyn. The Crucible, also starring Ben Whishaw and Tony winner Sophie Okonedo, will now begin performances on March 1; it had previously been set to start on February 29. Directed by Ivo van Hove, the show has additionally moved its opening night date to March 31 (from April 7).
Miller wrote The Crucible to parallel the McCarthyism of the 1950s. Set during the Salem witch trials of the 1690s, the play tells tales of morality, deceit and ignorance. The drama focuses on Abigail Williams (Ronan), a young woman so obsessed with John Proctor (Whishaw) that she is determined to have his wife (Okonedo) burned at the stake.
In addition to Whishaw, Okonedo and Ronan, The Crucible will star Ciarán Hinds, Bill Camp, Jim Norton, Tavi Gevinson and Jason Butler Harner. The production will also feature Tina Benko, Teagle Bougere, Michael Braun, Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut, Jenny Jules, Thomas Jay Ryan, Elizabeth Teeter, Ray Anthony Thomas, Brenda Wehle and Erin Wilhelmi.
The Crucible will play a strictly limited 20-week engagement through July 17 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Saoirse talked to Brantley Bardin from Palm Springs Life about her journey through Brooklyn, receiving the International Star Award at Palm Springs International Film Festival and more, read it below:
With a face that seems to come from another era, one so expressive that it could have served her well as a great silent film star, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan creates characters and produces performances that writers describe as “ethereal” and “otherworldly.”
Offscreen, however, Ronan is disarmingly unpretentious and a creature very much of her time. She professes to love basketball, swimming, and surfing. Three of her favorite movies of the last year include the über-popular titles, Trainwreck, Spy, and Inside Out. Best of all, she’s charmingly prone to reflexive self-deprecation: When conversation turns to a quick discussion of her rhapsodic pale, blue eyes, she says with a wry lilt, “Ah, yes, my eyes. My selling point. I’m, actually, a terrible actress, but the blue eyes, for some reason, seem to keep me going!”
In many ways, it seems, the Emerald Isle actress (whose first name is pronounced SEAR-sha) is a normal, funny, and endearing young woman of 21. Her prodigious work, however, is as far from normal as Ireland is from the Ivory Coast. With its heady mixture of art house and major studio work, her filmography is one most actresses twice her age can only dream about.Continue Reading (…)
