The Obamas just can't quit Broadway. Former President Barack Obama and his daughter Malia Obama have caught a new revival of Arthur Miller's The Price, the AP reports They attended the play starring Danny DeVito, Mark Ruffalo, Tony Shalhoub, and Jessica Hecht at the American Airlines Theatre on Friday. In The Price, a police officer feels that life has passed him by while he took care of his now-dead father. He and his estranged brother must reunite to sell off dad's possessions.

The Obamas were big boosters of Broadway during his presidency, especially Hamilton, A Raisin in the Sun, and Joe Turner's Come and Gone. Members of the Obama family also attended Memphis, Kinky Boots, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Sister Act, The Trip to Bountiful, Motown the Musical, and The Addams Family.
