Broken Glass
Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater


By Arthur Miller

Directed by Aaron Posner

June 14 — July 9, 2017

A riveting psychological drama from one of America’s master playwrights, Arthur Miller. Sylvia Gellburg has suddenly, mysteriously, become paralyzed from the waist down, and her husband, a self-denying Jew, can’t figure out why. Set in Brooklyn throughout the rampage of Kristallnacht in 1938, this rare and gripping drama demands we confront our fears, our assumptions, and our anguish. Miller balances private and public morality in this astonishing and electrifying play about being American, being married, and coming to terms with one’s own identity.

“Miller gives a riveting portrait of 1930s America… debilitatingly eccentric.” The Guardian
