1953: The Arthur Miller drama "The Crucible" opens at the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway. Miller wrote the play, a dramatization of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Province of Massachusetts Bay during 1692 and 1693, as an allegory of McCarthyism. It would win the Tony Award for Best Play later in the year.
