WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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.
