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.

For SCR Artistic Director Marc Masterson-who directs SCR's third production of Miller's play-the decision to stage it came up over lunch with actor Charlie Robinson.

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.

The design and creative team includes Michael Raiford, scenic design; Holly Poe Durbin, costume design; Brian Lilienthal, lighting design; Jim Ragland, composer/sound design; Josh Marchesi, production manager; and Jamie Tucker, stage manager.

Death of a Salesman is generously supported by Honorary Producers Sophie and Larry Cripe and Alan and Olivia Slutzky. The Corporate Honorary Producer is U.S. Bank.

This is the third time that SCR has produced Death of a Salesman; earlier stagings were during the 1968-69 and 1997-98 seasons.

Tickets start at $22. Discounts are available for full-time students, patrons 25 years of age and under, fulltime educators, seniors and groups of 10 or more. For complete information, visit: www.scr.org.
