Arthur Miller’s play “Resurrection Blues” will have its world premiere at Minneapolis’ Guthrie Theater this summer, with David Esbjornson directing. Opening night is set for Aug. 9.
Guthrie artistic director Joe Dowling described the play as a satiric comedy about a young revolutionary leader who is captured by a military government and sentenced to execution by crucifixion. Esbjornson previously directed Miller’s “The Ride Down Mount Morgan” on Broadway and is currently represented there with the world preem of Edward Albee’s “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?”
“Resurrection Blues” will run Aug. 3-Sept. 8 at the Guthrie.
Other plays in the company’s 2002-03 season include the world premiere of Jane Martin’s “Good Boys” as well as revivals of “The Comedy of Errors”; “A Christmas Carol”; “Mrs. Warren’s Profession”; “Six Degrees of Separation”; “Three Sisters”; “The Chairs”; “Top Girls”; and “Wintertime,” by Charles L. Mee.
