The Crucible

The cast brings forth some strong performances of Arthur Miller’s allegorical work, staged at an interesting time in our country’s history. The production elements are appropriately simple—plain costumes, a minimalistic set and a syncopated soundtrack which adds to the growing tension of the story. Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8 pm, Sun 2pm, Wed 7pm. Through 10/21; $15-$38; Sacramento Theatre Company Main Stage, 1419 H St., (916) 443-6722; P.R.
