Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the Tony award for “Best Play,” Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman”stays strikingly relevant in our times. Considered to be one of the greatest plays of the 20thCentury, subsequent productions on Broadway have won three Tony awards for “Best Revival.”
Burdened by financial responsibilities and living on the edge of poverty, Willy Loman’s “American Dream” is slipping through his grasp as he continues to believe he is on the verge of a “big break.” Struggling to see beyond the illusions he has created for himself and his family, Willy is unable to understand his failure to achieve success and happiness.
