Great writing, Riveting, Masterful, Intense, Great acting

See it if you enjoy good acting in deep drama as relevant today as when it was written. A little bit of music/singing, new staging and good lighting.

Don't see it if you do not like long, two-act plays full of conflict among family members derived from life's harshness.

Long, Profound, Intelligent, Slow, Great acting

See it if you’ve never seen a production of this play before. It’s central to the American theatre canon and should be seen at least once.

Don't see it if you have trouble sitting through long shows or need to find characters likable. This is watching a self-centered, broken man for 3 hours.

Too long, Intense, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like important plays & want to see a current, updated casting & meaning of the play. The cast is great, standouts are Pierce and Clarke

Don't see it if U cannot sit through 3 hour plays & discord is not what you want for evening entertainment. Andrea de Shields scared the hell out of me.

The New York Times

"The latest Broadway revival, which opened on Sunday at the Hudson Theater, goes wider, a notably rich and mostly successful approach."

New York Magazine / Vulture

It is not only the casting of the striving Lomans as a Black family that makes this Salesman a departure. It is also that the director, Miranda Cromwell, has rendered much of the play as a dissonant fever dream."

Entertainment Weekly
October 9th, 2022

"Maybe the enduring message of this production is that these themes are universal, that we all suffer the same under the yolk of The American Dream. And that, in spite of the odds, we all aspire to be great."

Variety
October 9th, 2022

"There’s no doubt that casting a Black actor as Willy Loman (for the first time on Broadway, no less) adds a deeper dimension to this monumental role."

The Wall Street Journal
October 9th, 2022

"Ms. Cromwell’s production is, nonetheless, emotionally wrenching as it digs fiercely into the heart of the play."

Deadline
October 9th, 2022

"The script is unchanged – and surprisingly accommodating to the fresh point of view...infusing the production with a legacy and identity all its own."

The Washington Post

"The mournful irony Miller built into 'Death of a Salesman' is especially potent now, when our world so often feels as if it’s hanging by a thread. "

New York Post
October 9th, 2022

"The climactic fight all the way to the inevitable conclusion is not affectingly tragic, and there is no build to speak of. Nice songs, but not enough attention was paid to the basics."
