Overview

It's the late 1930s in New York. Phillip Gellburg is an executive and the only Jew among the WASPs at a very Establishment Wall Street bank. His wife, Sylvia, is obsessed with news of Nazi Germany. After seeing a photo of old Jewish men forced to scrub the sidewalk with toothbrushes, she becomes mysteriously paralyzed in the legs. The only one who perceives Sylvia's fears and longings is Dr. Hyman - a man as passionate and empathetic as Phillip is repressed. Miller's resonant and intriguing new play is about sexual awakening, the consequences of denial, and the toll that social injustice takes on an individual. This is an extraordinarily powerful drama from America's foremost playwright.

Editorial Reviews

NY Times
In a metier where people burn out fast, Arthur Miller is still remarkable for the acuity and scope of his moral vision. Miller's voice, which remains as strong and unrelenting as a prophet's, distinguishes BROKEN GLASS and gives it a poignance so rare these days that it's almost new-fashioned.
Time
Playwrights tend to burn out young, so the fact that Arthur Miller, seventy-eight, opened a new drama on Broadway fifty years after his debut, is noteworthy. Even better, the play is good—complex, mysterious, full of arresting incident, grippingly played.
