Though I could not afford to travel to London in 2014 to see the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage —Richard Armitage at right in his 2015 Best Actor Olivier Award nominated portrayal of John Proctor–in the 2014 Old Vic London production of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” as directed by Yael Farber, I was fortunate to see the wonderful Digital Theatre filmed version of that play via a streaming platform.
And Richard Armitage and the whole cast and production of “The Crucible” were awesome! I had previously shared my general review of Richard Armitage and cast in “The Crucible (here). And then I shared my review of the subset ensemble of the cadre of girls in “The Crucible (here).
Now, that 2014 “The Crucible” film is coming to the U.S. in theatres for a limited run on the big screen beginning March 01, 2017!
This is so exciting—especially as an opportunity for more individuals to experience and enjoy Richard Armitage’s searing performance in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” as the deeply flawed but good man John Proctor (see Grati’s wallpaper quote below) who is caught in society’s web of lies, deceit, and personal vendettas as the hysteria of witchcraft and betrayal bring death to their community.

I hope that you get a chance to experience Richard Armitage and cast in “The Crucible”—either through the U.S. film release or via Digital Theatre!
