I saw The Crucible on stage in Royal Oak yesterday. It was really nice to see this play with Becky, since she and I visited Salem this summer. Based on the Salem Witch Trials, it was playwright Arthur Miller’s answer to 1950’s McCarthyism. I saw this on film as a kid and I remember being mortified when Giles Corey was pressed to death.
The Baldwin Theater is a rehabilitated 1920’s movie theater. It’s quite a gem, as far as community theaters go.
Next up is Much Ado About Nothing at The Hilberry.
I love to check out little theaters all over the state. Theater Season – another reason to appreciate the winter!
