Saoirse Ronan, Ben Whishaw, Sophie Okonedo and Ciarán Hinds will topline the production. Whishaw stars as John Proctor, Okonedo as wife Elizabeth, Ronan as Abigail Williams and Hinds as Deputy-Governor Danforth. Bill Camp, Jim Norton, Tavi Gevinson (returning to Broadway after her debut in “This Is Our Youth” last season) and Jason Butler Harner also are among the cast.
Jan Versweyveld will collaborate again with van Hove as the show’s set designer. Wojciech Dziedzic will serve as the production’s costume designer, with Philip Glass to provide an original score.
“The Crucible” — set during the 1690s Salem witch trials — is van Hove’s second Arthur Miller classic slated for a Broadway revival this season. His first, “A View From the Bridge,” begins previews this fall at the Lyceum, in a production also produced by Rudin.
“The Crucible” will begin previews Feb. 29 ahead of its opening date on April 7, but no theater has been named yet.
