Arthur Miller's 2002 play--his penultimate work for the stage--is a heavy-handed attempt at black comedy, about a Latin American dictator planning to crucify a rabble-rouser who may or may not be the Messiah. The execution is set to be broadcast live by an American TV production company, which has paid the dictator handsomely for exclusive rights to the atrocity. Miller juggles blunt satire on contemporary politics and media with philosophical ramblings about the human need for faith. The script's shortcomings are offset by Eclipse Theatre Company's finely acted and designed production, a Chicago premiere under Nathaniel Swift's direction. --Albert Williams
