Death of a Salesman - 1984 - 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.

The impact on American theatre of N. Richard Nash's THE RAINMAKER, a mid-century, self-described Romantic Comedy, is primarily found in its formidable presence (exceeded only by OUR TOWN) in any and all monologue and scene-study books. The leads, 'Lizzie' and 'Starbuck', are ever present at auditions, duo-acting tournaments, and Intro to Acting courses in high schools and colleges coast-to-coast. Despite it's not uncommon presence in local theatre, I'd never seen the full play before attending Hale Centre Theatre's current production. The play is culturally dated most certainly but made enjoyable by some strong performances and deft staging by director Tim Dietlein.
