The return to the Alley of Arthur Miller's Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Death of a Salesman is particularly relevant today. The play juxtaposes the American Dream with the realities of a fluctuating economy, unequal opportunities, and unfair advantages, with vivid characters and consummate theatricality. As salesman Willy Loman approaches the end of his working life, he must reconcile his unrealized dreams while struggling against the current world. Recommended for general audiences; mature themes.
Glenn Fleshler as Willy Loman joins Josie de Guzman as Linda, Zachary Spicer as Biff and Jay Sullivan as Happy. Also featured are Alley Theatre Resident Company Members Jeffrey Bean as Charley, James Belcher as Stanley, Emily Neves as Miss Forsythe, Melissa Pritchett as The Woman and Todd Waite as Uncle Ben. The cast also includes Ellen Dyer as Jenny, Drew Hirshfield as Bernard, Rebekah Stevens as Letta and Sidney Williams as Howard Wagner.
Death of a Salesman includes scenic design by Hugh Landwehr and costume design by Judith Dolan. Lighting design is by Pat Collins with original composition and sound design by Josh Schmidt, dialect coach Pamela Prather and Assistant Director and Dramaturg Jacey Little.
