The PlayGround Theatre has earned a reputation for producing extraordinarily well-crafted productions for children. Its past performances have enthralled young audiences via vibrant costumes and out-of-this-world sets, while bringing to life vintage fairy tales and European fables. Now the theater group is giving youngsters recess and producing a play for an adult audience. Its a doozy of a project. Arthur Millers The Creation of the World and Other Business aint kids stuff. The late, great playwright better known for theatrical staples like The Crucible and Death of a Salesman (and for his brief, dazzling marriage to Marilyn Monroe) took on the Bible with a reimagined version of Genesis. The dramatization knits humor with Greek tragedy as God and the Devil debate the merits of procreation.
