New Yiddish Rep presents Arthur Miller’s Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, updated and performed in Yiddish with English super-titles. More…
Set in the late 1940s, the story follows traveling salesman Willy Loman as he slowly unravels. The play explores the complicated family relationship between Willy, his wife, Linda, and their adult sons, Biff and Happy. In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning drama, playwright Arthur Miller examines how far one man will go to provide for his family and achieve the American dream.
"It’s frustrating that design gets in the way of this production. Mr. Yassur stages much of the play with straightforward simplicity... But when Willy’s mind grows muddled, and when he flashes back, up come the creepy lights and the eerie music. These jarring distractions arguably have roots in Miller’s stage directions, but here they read as misguided modernism, confusing the action rather than clarifying it. Ultimately, they become a fatal flaw." Full Review
