BWW Reviews: The Denver Center Theatre Company Presents a Timeless Masterpiece with DEATH OF A SALESMAN
I am sure I am not the first person to say this, but DEATH OF A SALESMAN is the most important piece of American dramatic literature. I truly believe that this iconic show applies to any time period or generation; and in this day and age of government shutdown, recession, foreclosures, and unemployment - this show is a pertinent as ever. The line "You have to break your neck to see a star in this yard," really does encompass the struggle of this all-American family. This is such a genius show because the audience so desperately wants to cheer for this family and their ever growing hardships and they get a glimmer of optimism at the beginning of Act II only to have it completely dashed by the end. The Denver Center Theatre Company truly honored this piece and the playwright with their stunning production and top-notch acting. This show left the audience transfixed throughout and made for a very memorable and emotional evening of theatre excellence. Just remember - this family drama and their eternal struggle will break you heart.
Thanks to a very talented cast and crew, this is a true honor, appreciation and understanding of this timeless classic and if you want to see theater at its best, then go see this memorable show! DEATH OF A SALESMAN is haunting audiences now through October 20th in the Space Theatre of the Denver Center. Performances are Tuesdays - Thursdays at 6:30pm, Fridays - Sundays at 7:30pm, and Saturdays & Sundays matinees at 1:30pm.
