    Former President Barack Obama and his daughter, Malia, caught a new revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Price” at the American Airlines Theatre in New York.

NEW YORK >> The Obamas just can’t quit Broadway.

Former President Barack Obama and his daughter, Malia, caught a new revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Price.” They attended the play starring Danny DeVito, John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht at the American Airlines Theatre today.

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.”
