The Price was last seen on Broadway in 1999 directed by James Naughton. “When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father,” state RTC production notes. “Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long‐stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.”

The production features set design by Derek McLane, costume design by Sarah Holden, lighting design by David Weiner, sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen, original compositions by Jesse Tabish, hair and wig design by Tom Watson, and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
