NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” will be revived on Broadway this fall, featuring a cast that will include John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Patrick Wilson, and, making her Broadway debut, Katie Holmes.
Exact dates and theater will be announced, producer Eric Falkenstein said Monday.
The play, first seen on Broadway in 1947, was Miller’s first Broadway hit. It concerns businessman Joe Keller (to be played by Lithgow) whose factory supplied defective cylinder parts to the military, resulting in the deaths of 21 pilots during World War II.
Yet it was his business partner who went to jail for the mistake.
Wiest will play Keller’s wife; Wilson, his idealistic son; and Holmes, the son’s fiancee and daughter of Keller’s disgraced partner.
Simon McBurney will direct.
“All My Sons” was revived on Broadway in 1987 and was last seen in New York 10 years later in a Roundabout Theatre Company production off-Broadway.
