Wed through Sat 8pm
Death Of A Salesman Broadway play has been a hit with audiences since the 1949 Broadway premiere. American playwright Author Miller's writing had found a home and a certain resonance with theater goers, which has continued over sixty years later. The play has won many awards along the way and adapted into film. The playwright's use of story telling, characters and creative flashbacks have helped draw audiences to each revival production. 2012 marks the fourth return of the Death Of A Salesman Broadway revival which is scheduled to open on March 15 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
Previews for the return of the popular play has begun and so have the responses. Since the production began running previews on February 13, 2012 critics and audiences have been positive. The newest revival is under the direction of eight-time Tony's winner Mike Nichols. The play certainly does not lack a creative cast which includes Philip Seymour Hoffman playing lead role of "Willy Loman." The cast also includes Andrew Garfield as Biff, and Linda Emond as Linda.
Death Of A Salesman Broadway has had many successes over the years. The original premiere occurred at the Morosco Theatre on February 10, 1949. The debut cast included Lee J. Cobb as Willy Loman, Mildred Dunnock as Linda, Arthur Kennedy as Biff and Cameron Mitchell as Happy. The production quickly found an audience as well as critical acclaim winning the Tony Award for Best Play, the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play. In 1951 Miller's work was adapted for the big screen by Stanley Roberts and directed by László Benedek. Revivals
Death Of A Salesman Broadway play was revived three times after the debut (not including the 2012 revival). The first revival opened at the Circle in the Square Theatre on June 26, 1975 and ran for seventy-one performances. On March 29, 1984, the play opened at the Broadhurst Theatre and starred Dustin Hoffman as Willy. The show closed after 97 performances but was re-staged later that same year for another 88 performance run. The play took home the Tony Award for Best Revival. The last revival found a home at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre where it opened on February 10, 1999 running for 274 performances. The production starred Brian Dennehy as Willy and was filmed. Miller's work has widely been accepted as an important work for both content and style. The play has been studied in schools and workshops around the world.2012
