Arthur Miller's classic play, Death of a Salesman, has seen numerous revivals on Broadway, each one encompassed in a different aesthetic by the actor playing the tragic "Willy Loman."

Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast as "Willy Loman" with Tony nominee Linda Emond as his wife, "Linda Loman." Tony and Academy Award winner Mike Nichols will direct, again showing his versatility and range.

Death of a Salesman examines the myth of the "American Dream" and the deterioration of the family unit in post-World War II America.

More information on theatre location and opening dates will be posted here soon.
