The Williamstown Theater Festival’s summer season continues with a notable new revival of Henrik Ibsen’s landmark play “A Doll’s House” that runs through Saturday at the Nikos Stage. Lily Rabe, who starred opposite Al Pacino in “The Merchant of Venice” on Broadway last season, plays Nora Helmer, the docile housewife whose moral awakening culminates in the most famous door-slam in theater history.

Charles Isherwood of the New York Times joins Jeff Spurgeon in the studio to discuss this new production and the Williamstown Theater Festival.
