Photo Flash: First Look at Charlie Robinson and More in SCR's DEATH OF A SALESMAN
Miller's classic drama opens South Coast Repertory's milestone 50th season, with actor Charlie Robinson as Willy Loman and a dramatically diverse cast. The show runs on the Segerstrom Stage Aug. 30-Sept. 29. Tickets are available online:www.scr.org. BroadwayWorld has a first look below!
Willy Loman was once the best traveling salesman in his territory; but time is catching up with him, and old age is slowing him down. Linda, his wife, hopes he can stay put for a while and work in New York; after all, she thinks his years of service to the company have earned him that right. Willy knows that the key to success is to be well-liked, and he struggles to understand why his adult sons, Biff and Happy, have failed to learn that lesson. As Willy tries to instill in his sons the values he has lived by, he clings tenaciously to his version of the American Dream-even as he watches it quickly slip away.
In addition to Robinson, SCR's production features Larry Bates, Chris Butler, Gregg Daniel, Celeste Den, Tracey A. Leigh, Becca Lustgarten, Georgina E. Okon, Tyler Pierce, Christopher Rivas, Kim Staunton, James A. Watson andTobie Windham.
