All My Sons New York Tickets
All My Sons New York TicketsAll My Sons is a 1947 three-act play from the mind of legendary playwright Arthur Miller. It tells the story of businessmen Joe Keller and Steve Deever whose scheme to sell faulty airplane parts to the military in order to stave off financial disaster led directly to the deaths of 21 pilots. It is loosely based on a true story involving a conspiracy between members of the Wright Aeronautical Corporation, technical advisers and military aviation inspectors to approve substandard equipment for military use. Following the dual traumas of the Great Depression and World War II, All My Sons dealt with ideas that were lurking within the country’s subconscious at the time. Audiences in New York can experience a retelling of Miller’s famous play on Broadway.
The Making of Arthur MillerAll My Sons, Miller’s second Broadway play, marked an important inflection point in his illustrious career. Though Miller had written a number of successful plays in the 1930s as a student at the University of Michigan, he failed spectacularly with his first Broadway show, The Man Who Had All the Luck, which closed after a mere four performances. Miller vowed to find another line of work if his next play failed as well. Fortunately, when All My Sons made its world premiere on Jan. 29, 1947, at the Coronet Theatre (now known as the Eugene O'Neill Theatre), it was an instant success. With an all-star cast of Ed Begley, Hope Cameron, Arthur Kennedy and Karl Malden, the play completed its run of 328 performances that November. Elia Kazan, who would later make A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront with Marlon Brando, served as the director and producer of the original show. The Broadway production became a critical darling with two Tony Award wins for Best Author of a Play and Best Direction. Numerous revivals and adaptations would follow, including a 1948 film starring Burt Lancaster and Edward G. Robinson. On Broadway, a 2019 revival from the Roundabout Theatre Company received three Tony Award nominations for Best Revival, Best Actress and Best Featured Actor in a Play.
