Arthur Miller: 1915-2005
Death of a Salesman is one of Miller’s most famous plays and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1949. Willy Loman is an aging salesman who has worked hard throughout his career, but all his aspirations for himself and his family seem to have failed. He begins to lose his grip on reality leading to tragedy…

This production, which was originally presented by the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in 1998, transferred to Broadway the following year where it won five Tony Awards including Best Revival, Best Direction and Best Actor for Brian Dennehy. Dennehy is best known for his work in feature films including Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, Presumed Innocent, F/X, Legal Eagles, Cocoon, Gorky Park and First Blood. His Broadway stage work includes Peter Brook’s production of The Cherry Orchard and, recently, starring opposite Vanessa Redgrave in Long Day’s Journey into Night, for which he won a second Tony Award for Best Actor. He won the Golden Globe Award for his performance in the American televised version of Death of a Salesman.

Clare Higgins, another multiple award-winner, stars alongside Dennehy as Linda Loman.
