Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman will run through December 15 at the Firehouse:
The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty, Arthur Miller’s play remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre. After a very successful recent Broadway revival starring Oscar Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Death of a Salesman continues to display particular resonance with the country’s current economic climate, showing that it is still relevant even now, over 60 years since it was first produced.
