DEATH OF A SALESMAN Comes to the Ringwald
The Ringwald Theatre's production of Arthur Miller's classic American tragedy Death of A Salesman will open on Friday, February 15 and run for four weeks.
Throughout its twelve seasons, The Ringwald has been committed to reviving iconic American plays-like A Streetcar Named Desire and Glengarry Glen Ross-and giving them distinctive productions that explore why they endure for contemporary audiences. Salesman is a thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
Ringwald regular and Wilde Award-winner Joel Mitchell will star as the downtrodden Willy Loman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic, soul-searching revelations, audiences discover how his quest for the American Dream kept him blind to the people who truly loved him.
The production is directed by Joe Bailey and features Mitchell, Kelly Komlen, Donny Riedel, Jeffrey McMahon, Randy Stewart, Dante Jones, Brandy Joe Plambeck, Tess Hannah, Patricia Gajos, and Dyan Bailey
