Irish Classical mounts Arthur Miller’s ‘All My Sons’

The Irish Classical Theatre Company, along with the rest of the American theater, is on something of an Arthur Miller kick.

Following last season’s well-received production of “Death of a Salesman,” the company has brought back director Greg Natale to mount Miller’s “All My Sons,” a haunting family drama set just after World War II that drills toward the same truth as “Salesman” about the corrosive effects of economic opportunism.

The Irish Classical’s production stars Peter Palmisano and Josie DiVincenzo as the grief-stricken Kellers, whose son Larry went missing while serving as a pilot in the war. The grim story, also featuring Candice Kogut and Anothony Alcocer, revolves around Larry’s absence.

“With a distinguished career spanning over 50 years, Miller has engaged us with his laser sharp insights into the heart and soul of the ‘everyman,’” Irish Classical Theatre Artistic Director Vincent O’Neill said in a statement. “‘All My Sons’ delves into the complex issues that define us and the far-reaching effects they have on our community, family, friends and even those we will never meet.”

The production is timed to coincide with the national celebration of the 100th anniversary of Miller’s birth. The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 15 and runs through Feb. 7. Tickets are $43 general, $20 students. Call 853-4282 or visit irishclassicaltheatre.com.
