Death of a Salesman in Austin


Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

Austin Playhouse brings Arthur Miller’s classic drama Death of a Salesman to life from February 17 – March 12, 2017. It’s 1949 in Brooklyn, and Willy Loman, the failing salesman who once made his living “riding on a smile and a shoeshine,” begins to crumble under the weight of the American dream. Recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, multiple Tony Awards, and widely considered to be one of the greatest plays of the Twentieth Century, this emotionally gripping tale is an exploration of failure and success that still resonates today.

Austin Playhouse is flying in Peter Sheridan, an acclaimed Irish director, playwright and screenwriter, to direct Death of a Salesman. In regards to the play, he says, “Many who bought into the American dream a generation ago, have had a rude awakening. In Willy Loman, they have someone to identify with, a man desperate to make a success of his family by being successful at work. The lessons in Death of a Salesman have never been more relevant or instructive. We should heed them at our peril.”

The show will star Marc Pouhé (Satchel Paige, The Mountaintop) as Willy Loman with Carla Nickerson (Satchel Paige, The Mountaintop), Patrick Gathron (Satchel Paige), and Sean Christopher as the Loman family. The design team includes Mike Toner (set design), Diana Huckaby (costume design), Don Day (lighting design), and Joel Mercado-See (sound design).
