Saoirse Ronan and Ben Whishaw Bring New Dimension to The Crucible
by ADAM GREEN
If you are in the market for revelatory—and pulse-quickening—productions of plays that you thought you knew all too well, then the Belgian director Ivo van Hove is your man. On the heels of his devastating staging of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge, van Hove returns to Broadway this month with his take on The Crucible, Miller’s thinly veiled allegory about the 1950s Communist witch hunts, set against the actual 1690s Salem witch hunts, featuring music by Philip Glass and an A-plus cast led by Ben Whishaw and, making her professional stage debut, Saoirse Ronan.
We have now updated the gallery with five promotional stills from ‘The Crucible’. The play, starring Saoirse, Ben Whishaw, and Sophie Okonedo, will have its official opening night tonight in New York.
USA Today has published a new story today on Saoirse and her The Crucible co-star Ben Whishaw. We have added a photo from their new shoot together. Below, we also added a new video interview from USA Today.
NEW YORK — 21-year-old Irish actress Saoirse Ronan‘s screen roles have ranged from a precocious adolescent in 2007’s Atonement to a young woman torn between two homes and loves in last year’s Brooklyn — both of which earned her Oscar nominations.
What her characters tend to have in common, Ronan believes, is “they kind of stay in the background, observing, until they step in and (mess) things up.”
Abigail Williams, the 17-year-old orphan Ronan is playing in the new Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible that marks her professional stage debut, certainly fits the latter part of that description, and then some. Miller described Abigail in the stage directions for his 1953 play as “a strikingly beautiful girl…with an endless capacity for dissembling.”
CBS Sunday Morning has released an online extra of Saoirse running through lines from “The Crucible” with the help of correspondent Jane Pauley. Watch the sweet video below.
