Crucible Critique The play of the Crucible was overall a very good, entertaining play. The play was actually based off of the book The Crucibleby Arthur Miller. To start out, the setting was wonderful. I could tell that the cast and crew put a lot of work into the setting. In my opinion, I thought the set was very pretty and went very well with the overall themes of the play. The stage was very well set, but I think that the play would have been better if the actors had more room. However, there is not much anyone can do about that. The acting was overall very well. My favorite actor was Andrew Gilman who played John Proctor. John Proctor is a very important person in the play and Andrew fit his character very well. Also, Abigail’s girls that decided everyone’s fate were also very well cast. The wardrobe used in the play fit the time period that the book was written in very well. The lighting of the stage was ok, I thought. I had trouble seeing the beginning part in the forest, but I figured that it was supposed to be dark because it was nighttime. I think that some of the actors could have projected their voice a little more. I had trouble hearing what some of the more soft spoken characters said sometimes, like Elizabeth Proctor. The music I had trouble hearing most of the time. However, the music, I figured, was just for background music to set the mood, but I still think that they could have made it louder. Other than when some actor’s forgot their lines, I thought the play was overall very good. Even when they did forget their lines, they kept everything moving. Overall, I think that the play was very entertaining, and I would go see it again if the play was still out.
