Willy Loman is the most famous traveling salesman in history. In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1949, when Willy is downsized by his young boss, he caves under the strain of not being able to make ends meet. Lyrical and intense, the action shifts between memories of Willy’s glory days and his crumbling relationship with sons Biff and Happy. Staged by the director of Freud’s Last Session
at The Public, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about aging, economics, and the American Dream has retained all its relevance and power.
