On Wednesday I saw a brilliant version of Arthur Miller's The Price, by Timeline Theatre. Excellent performances all round, especially as it's a wordy and intense play - even by Mr Miller's standards. The set design was stunning: tons of antique furniture hoisted up and attached onto the wall, lurching over the players the entire time as they debated its value (and the value of so much else). Had a great chat with Louis Contey, the director, afterwards about the difficulties of staging a piece like this in the thrust, where so much of the characters lines are nigh-monologue in length. And I had the pleasure of seeing Mike Nussbaum, who is the oldest actor working on stage in the USA (according to Equity). He was an absolute delight, a masterclass in comedy and gravitas.
