Death of a Salesman Broadway

The tragedy of a typical American - a salesman who at the age of sixty-three is faced with what he cannot face: defeat and disillusionment. Death of a Salesman is considered by many to be both the playwright's masterpiece and a cornerstone of contemporary American drama. Miller's work is revered for its bold realism and riveting theatricality, a play that deals in weighty emotional issues without descending to melodrama.
