Project Description

Memories

I was Associate Producer of DEATH OF A SALESMAN, a drama, which opened at the Lyric Theatre, London West End on May 16, 2005 and closed on November 5, 2005, with a run of 167 performances and 8 paid previews (previews began on May 10, 2005). This was a remount of the 1999 Broadway production, using the same creative team and some of the starring cast (where permitted by British Actors Equity)

Salesman Willy Loman finds his career crumbling and his relationships with his wife and sons severely tested in Arthur Miller’s dream-like meditation on the cost of the American dream.

Produced by Delphi Productions (David Richenthal, Anthony D. Marshall, Charlene T. Marshall, Francis X. Morrisey Jr., John G. Popp, Arthur Richenthal & Toby Simkin); and Presented by Really Useful Theatres, and later by NiMax.
