The revival will star Ben Whishaw, Sophie Okonedo, Saoirse Ronan and Ciaran Hinds, and feature an original score by Philip Glass.

Scott Rudin is bringing a new production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible to Broadway.

The revival — which is set during the Salem witch trials in the 1690s — will begin previews Feb. 29 before its April 7 opening at a theater to be announced. It will star Ben Whishaw as John Proctor, Sophie Okonedo as Elizabeth Proctor, Saoirse Ronan as Abigail Williams, and Ciaran Hinds as Deputy-Governor Danforth. Bill Camp, Jim Norton, Tavi Gevinson and Jason Butler Harner are also among the cast.

The 20-week limited engagement will be directed by Ivo van Hove, whose hit revival of A View From the Bridge with Mark Strong is also transferring to Broadway in November, via Rudin.

It will feature an original score by Philip Glass and costume design by Wojciech Dziedzic, as well as scenic and lighting design by longtime van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld.
