All My Sons

Katie Holmes will make her Broadway debut in the greatly-anticipated new production of Arthur Miller's Tony Award-winning classic, All My Sons, directed by the world-renowned Simon McBurney. Tony Award-winner John Lithgow, Academy Award-winner Dianne Wiest, and Tony Award nominee Patrick Wilson will also star. Tickets are on sale now at Telecharge.com.

All My Sons synopsis: As timely today as the day it was written, the play was inspired by a true story about a successful businessman who knowingly sold the government defective airplane parts during World War II. A middle-class couple, Joe and Kate Keller, have lost their older son in the war, but Kate cannot give up believing that he is still alive. Chris, their surviving son, falls in love with his brother's fiancée Ann and brings her home to tell them of their new relationship and their plans to marry. In the confrontations that follow, cracks begin to appear in everyone's stories, lies are exposed, and a secret is revealed that could destroy them all. Don’t miss this strictly limited engagement of Arthur Miller’s thought-provoking play about the American dream, and the price we pay to keep it alive.
