Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theatre. In the person of Willy Loman – the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding a smile and a shoeshine – Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man who's dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. Death of a Salesman compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room. Director Ozzie Jones weaves this caustic attach on the American dream of materialism with an all African American cast.
Experience Philadelphia favorites Mary Martello and Ben Dibble together as never before in this suspenseful, timely American drama that grapples with questions of moral certainty...and doubt. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt: A Parable will move you, challenge you, and leave you on the edge of your seat.
Victor Williams (King of Queens) stars as Troy Maxon in August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama about a man of mythic proportions forced to wrestle with the reality of his life. A sanitation worker and onetime Negro League baseball player, Troy is the heart and heartbreak of this iconic story of dreams denied, fathers and sons, and America's legacy of racism. Fences is one of the most beloved plays of the 20th Century written by "a major writer, combining a poet's ear for vernacular with a robust sense of humor (political and sexual), a sure instinct for crackling dramatic incident and a passionate commitment to a great subject." (The New York Times). The cast will also feature People's Light Company Member, Melanye Finister.
In the spring, the Wilma will stage back-to-back productions of William Shakespeare's Hamlet and Tom Stoppard's now classic behind-the-scenes comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, both directed by Wilma Artistic Director Blanka Zizka and using essentially the same cast for both productions. Bringing freshness to all aspects of the play, the title character in Shakespeare's tragedy will be played by the transformational and powerful actress, Zainab Jah, who recently appeared as Prudence in The Convert at the Wilma. Believed by many to be the greatest play written by Shakespeare, and by many others to be the greatest play written in the English language, the Wilma is excited to throw our voices into the mix. The fight for the throne of Denmark, quest for moral righteousness, and the complexities of vengeance within a 21st century context will be reexamined on the Wilma stage.
A musical satire of 1960s big business and all it held sacred, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the company man, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. This blockbuster musical comedy features a beloved score packed with such hit standards as "I Believe in You," "Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm," "The Company Way," "Been a Long Day," "Rosemary" and "Brotherhood of Man."
