The original Broadway production opened 65 years ago on January 22, 1953.

The Crucible, Arthur Miller’s Tony-winning 1953 dramatization of the real-life Salem witch trials, opened on Broadway January 22, 1953.

Miller’s play, an indictment of the political paranoia that defined the McCarthy Era’s anti-communist “witch hunts” that cost many their livelihoods, won the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. The play has since been revived on Broadway four times.
