Why See Death of a Salesman?
Arthur Miller's Iconic Portrait of Willy Loman
One of the greatest works in the theatrical canon, Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is an excoriating critique of the American Dream. The winner of seven Tony Awards and the Pultizer Prize upon its 1949 Broadway debut, this powerful work takes place over the course of a single day, and centers on the character of Willy Loman, an ageing travelling salesman who battles against his growing insignificance by escaping into a world of fantasy.
Death of a Salesman has enjoyed many Broadway revivals over the years, and has been adapted for the silver screen numerous times. This Ford's Theater production stars Helen Hayes Award nominee Craig Wallace as Willy Loman, and Kimberly Schraf as Linda Loman, and is directed by Stephen Rayne.
